The Australian Government is committed to ensuring that Australia maintains its position as an established global leader in world-class research. To achieve this, Australian researchers require continuing access to cutting edge NRI.
Demonstrating this commitment, the Government recently made a significant additional investment of $2.2 billion to address NRI priorities, an investment which builds on past strategic planning and investment. Australia’s NRI Strategic Framework also includes plans for future investment plans and roadmaps.
The National Collaborative Research Infrastructure Strategy (NCRIS) program is a key enabler for NRI, by supporting a network of world-class NRI infrastructure projects. The projects support the Australian economy through high-quality research driving greater innovation in the Australian research sector. They also support strategically important research to address key national and global challenges.
