How we support the research community
AARNet operates Australia's National Research and Education Network (NREN) on behalf of 38 Australian Universities and the CSIRO.
The unique research infrastructure we provide interconnects researchers, data-intensive resources such as telescopes, storage and computational facilities, and the global research community.
By providing this enabling infrastructure AARNet plays a critical role in Australia's innovation system.
Our eResearch group assists teams involved in myriad research programs across many disciplines, in the sciences and humanities, to realize the full potential of the network, share information and achieve project goals.
We provide support and services for research projects in the sciences and humanities, including high energy physics, radio astronomy, health and medicine, climate science and more.
