Building collaborative partnerships

We collaborate with other National Collaborative Research Infrastructure Strategy (NCRIS) capabilities, eInfrastructure providers, peak bodies and research institutions to connect communities and networks to increase knowledge sharing and deliver national benefits.

For example, we have created the Research Activity Identifier (RAiD) in partnership with the Australian Access Federation (AAF) and Australia’s Academic and Research Network (AARNet).

RAiD is a persistent identifier connecting researchers, institutions, outputs and tools together to give oversight across the whole research activity and make reporting and data provenance clear and easy.

Our communities of practice

We work with a number of communities to support those working in, or interested in, research data. These communities provide a platform for ongoing support, information exchange, best practice and problem solving.

You can find out more about each community, and register (where provided) to stay informed on latest news, upcoming webinars and discussions.
