What is NCRIS?
Through NCRIS, the Government is providing $542 million over 2005-2011 to provide researchers with major research facilities, supporting infrastructure and networks necessary for world-class research.
No funding is currently available for new projects. All available funding has been allocated to priority capability areas identified in the 2006 NCRIS Roadmap.
In November 2006, funding for twelve priority NCRIS areas of investment was announced.
Strategic Roadmap for Australian Research Infrastructure
During 2011, a Strategic Roadmap for Australian Research Infrastructure will be developed to inform future decisions on where Australia should make strategic infrastructure investments to further develop its research capacity and improve research outcomes over the next five to ten years.
Information on the timeline and process for the development of the 2011 Roadmap can be found on the Department of Innovation, Industry, Science and Research website.
Two previous Roadmaps for Australian Research Infrastructure have been developed. Further details can be found on the following pages:
