Through the National Collaborative Research Infrastructure Strategy (NCRIS), the Government works with the research sector to drive research excellence and its application by:
- collaboratively identifying priorities for research infrastructure investment over the coming decade
- catalysing research infrastructure projects, collaboratively implemented by the sector, that improve research projects by expertly addressing the scope of researcher needs
- simultaneously addressing related end-user needs, including industry, Government and other end users.
NCRIS supports approximately 40,000 users each year.
The National Youth Affairs Research Scheme was a cooperative funding program between the Australian Government and state and territory governments which ended in 2016.
