Pump $5 million into efforts to present as a united front.
Three Australian eResearch providers are banding together to create services for 10 national communities researching fields including climate, medical, terrestrial and marine environments, culture and genomics.
The joint partnership between the Australian National Data Service (ANDS), National eResearch Collaboration Tools and Resources (Nectar) and Research Data Services (RDS) will benefit from an initial $5 million in seed funding.
Of that, “over” $4.3 million has been earmarked for the ‘research community’ projects.

Researchers in those ‘communities’ will also have the ability to run simulations in a digital, virtual environment.
