Roadmapping Australia’s eResearch future


Substantial investments in eResearch infrastructure and services have been made over the past decade with AeRO’s Members and other organisations delivering these services.

The Australian Government has established the National Research Infrastructure Review,
which will shortly recommend a framework for future infrastructure planning and provisioning.

How planning, coordinating, building and operating eResearch infrastructure
will sit within and support that framework is now a key issue.
