National Research Infrastructure (NRI) Advisory Group

Education
The National Research Infrastructure Advisory Group has been established to provide the Australian Government with independent and long-term strategic advice on national research infrastructure (NRI). The Advisory Group members have been chosen for their diverse expertise and extensive networks across Australian research and innovation sectors. This Advisory Group is an important element of the Government’s efforts to give Australian researchers access to world-class research infrastructure. These efforts include the Government spending $4 billion from 2017 to 2029 on national research infrastructure. The Advisory Group will track trends and identify opportunities to help guide these efforts. They will support the Government’s future direction in research infrastructure, including strategic advice to support the global, digital and multidisciplinary nature of modern research.
