National Collaborative Research Infrastructure Strategy (NCRIS)

Australia’s research excellence is underpinned by access to excellent national research infrastructure.

The National Collaborative Research Infrastructure Strategy (NCRIS) is a highly collaborative and distinctively Australian program which maximises Australia’s NRI investments by coordinating open access, targeted specialities, and co-funding across the country.
