Research Initiatives and Infrastructure

About us

We are a small and agile team, working as part of the Research and Innovation Portfolio to support cross-University research initiatives and university-scale research infrastructure. In particular we provide strategic support and advice to ANU's NCRIS (National Collaborative Research Infrastructure Strategy) investments, and coordinate a portfolio of strategic initiatives each working to address society's most challenging issues.  Our scope extends specifically to oversight of ANU Collections strategy and advice, and the Statistical Support Network.

We are specialists in governance, strategy and business improvement.

Research Initiatives and Infrastructure is led by Professor Ute Roessner AM FAA.
