Australian National Data Service
The Australian National Data Service (ANDS) was established in 2008 to help address the challenges of storing and managing Australia's research data, and making it discoverable and accessible for validation and reuse. It is a joint collaboration between Monash University, The Australian National University and CSIRO.
ANDS is funded by the Australian Department of Innovation, Industry, Science and Research (DIISR). The funding has been provided through Australian Government's National Collaborative Research Infrastructure Strategy (NCRIS) as part of the Platforms for Collaboration Investment Plan. The NCRIS roadmap emphasized the vital importance of eResearch Infrastructure to Australian future research competitiveness. In mid-2009 ANDS was further funded by the Education Investment Fund (EIF) for the establishment of the Australian Research Data Commons under the Australian Government’s Super Science Initiative.
