What’s next for the eResearch IT infrastructure ecosystem?

AARNet Interview: Ian Duncan (Director, Research Data Services)

This infrastructure consists of entities such as Australia’s Academic and Research Network (AARNet), Australian Access Federation (AAF), Australian National Data Service (ANDS), National eResearch Collaboration Tools and Resources (NeCTAR) and Research Data Services (RDS) working together to provide services that support the eResearch sector, underpin research impact and excellence, and drive economic, environmental, health and social benefits for Australia.

We interviewed Ian Duncan, RDS Director about the role RDS plays and some of the new projects in the pipeline involving other infrastructure partners, including AARNet.

Watch the short (3.30 minute) video and learn about next steps, the research data lifecycle project, where AARNet’s CloudStor file sender and storage service for research might fit, and more.
