Data as a Service
Intersect and other State-based eResearch organisations are driving a suite of national projects that help support the increasingly collaborative nature of Australian research. We provide research domain data platforms, services and expertise across a range of disciplines.
Medical & Health Data Platforms
Life Sciences Data Platforms
Imaging Publishing Data Platforms
Culture & Communities Data Platforms
“We have a number of large sized and growing data collections at NeuRA that form part of national or international collaborative projects. Storage of this data with Intersect greatly facilitates sharing of this data with existing collaborators. By promoting the availability of such stored data, we anticipate that additional requests for data sharing would be more frequent and we would value the opportunities that this greater accessibility would create”. Professor Peter Schofield, Executive Director and CEO NeuRA – Neuroscience Research Australia
