Maintaining and enhancing merit-based access to the NCI National Facility (ARC LIEF project administered by The Australian National University) (2016–2018)
Australia's National Computational Infrastructure (NCI) is the national, high-end research computing facility, providing researchers in universities, government science agencies and industry with world-class, integrated, high-performance services. These services enable high-impact, computational and data-intensive research in all fields of science and technology, supporting 191 ARC projects in Centres of Excellence, research projects and fellowships that generate more than 740 publications p.a., and which are in receipt of $43M p.a. from the ARC. This grant will continue merit-based access to NCI at the current level (i.e., a 32% facility share), ensuring ongoing
international competitiveness of research and securing the ARC's investments.
