The Intersect-led consortium of 11 universities was successful with an ARC LIEF grant for funding commencing in 2014 entitled “Renewing Intersect's share of the National Computational Infrastructure's peak facility”.
An amount of $1,025,000 was awarded to fund our merit share of the NCI facility for the next three to four years. The lead CI for this proposal was A/Prof Evatt Hawkes with UNSW the administering organisation. This is the third successful ARC LIEF grant in a row to fund High Performance facilities for NSW researchers. This represents a leverage of 1.9 for a co-investment of $540,000 by members.
