Following a recent grant of $25 million from the Australian Government’s 2023 National Collaborative Research Infrastructure Strategy (NCRIS) funding round, the Australian Research Data Commons (ARDC) is inviting the research community to join workshops to co-design programs for the HASS and Indigenous Research Data Commons.

The new grant enables the ARDC to expand the HASS and Indigenous Research Data Commons, which is establishing long-term, enduring national digital research infrastructure to support researchers to harness research data to enhance Australian social and cultural wellbeing, and help understand and preserve our culture, history and heritage.

The co-design workshops

Through the co-design workshops, the ARDC aims to better understand the current digital research challenges faced by researchers and managers of Indigenous data. The workshops will enable the research community to discuss the investment opportunities that ARDC has identified, with the aim of learning:

  • what outcomes and developments would be of most benefit
  • what will be both valuable and feasible
  • how our investments can align with other activity in the sector.

Who should participate

  • HASS and Indigenous research community, including academics, researchers and citizen scientists, particularly those involved in data-driven research
  • managers of Indigenous data
  • senior decision makers at research, GLAM and Indigenous institutions, industry and NGOs
  • those who collect and manage data for use by research
  • research infrastructure providers and digital skills trainers
