UQ to lead RDSI

8 Feb 2011

The Department of Innovation, Industry, Science and Research has announced the University of Queensland will lead the $50 million Research Data Storage Infrastructure (RDSI) Project. Dr Nick Tate has been appointed as the full-time Project Director and began work on 27 January 2011. The RDSI project aims to develop a national network of data stores, or ‘Nodes’, where data is allocated storage capacity through a priority and merit process and where that data can be readily accessed, analysed and re-used in a governed environment.

It is likely that a sector based Project Board will be appointed by 1 March 2011 and a first call for Node Proposals is anticipated by end of June 2011, with an initial set of Nodes recommended to the Department for approval by end of September 2011.
