National Collaborative Research Infrastructure Strategy (NCRIS)

Logo text: NCRIS National Research Infrastructure for Australia

Australian Government National Innovation and Science AgendaThe National Collaborative Research Infrastructure Strategy drives research excellence and collaboration between 35,000 researchers, government and industry to deliver practical outcomes.

Image: The Australian Plant Phenomics Facility, funded by the NCRIS, which provides state of the art infrastructure to address food security, nutrition, sustainable agriculture and biofuel feed-stocks.

Ongoing funding will enable continued operation of critical super-computer capacity and world-class research infrastructure in areas such as nanofabrication, food production, health, environment and sustainable cities.

Since 2004, the Australian Government has invested over $2.8 billion to deliver world-class research infrastructure. This has attracted more than $1 billion in co-investment from state and territory governments, universities, research facilities and industry. For a list of infrastructure projects funded by NCRIS, go to funded research infrastructure projects.

The NCRIS network currently supports national research capability through 27 active projects and is comprised of 222 institutions employing well over 1700 highly skilled technical experts, researchers and facility managers. NCRIS facilities are used by over 35,000 researchers, both domestically and internationally.

The 2016 National Research Infrastructure Roadmap (2016 Roadmap) outlines national research infrastructure required over the coming decade so that Australia’s world class research system continued to improve productivity, create jobs, lift economic growth and support a healthy environment.

You can read NCRIS case studies on the real life outcomes of research conducted at NCRIS facilities, demonstrating the social and economic return from the Government’s investment in national research infrastructure.
