Research Initiatives and Infrastructure

The Research Initiatives and Infrastructure (RII) team coordinates university-level strategic investments that drive novel, transformational and interdisciplinary research. 

RII oversees major research initiatives including the Grand Challenges and Innovation Institutes programs, and is coordinating university-wide strategies for provision of research infrastructure (such as ANU Collections, Statistical Support Network, Major Equipment Committee Grants), ensuring that staff and students have access to national and international platforms.

The RII team works closely with stakeholders across the university to support and promote the work of interdisciplinary and collaborative teams, and increase the visibility and accessibility of research infrastructure and services.
