The 2016 National Research Infrastructure Roadmap is officially underway with the release of the Terms of Reference.   The roadmap will set out Australia’s long-term research infrastructure needs and identify priority areas for future national investment.

Australia’s Chief Scientist, Dr Alan Finkel AO, will lead the development of the 2016 Roadmap supported by an expert working group.

The 2016 National Research Infrastructure Roadmap will set out a ten year plan for national research infrastructure that will ensure Australian researchers continue to have access to world class state of the art research infrastructure.  This will ensure that Australian research will continue to be leading edge so as to drive greater innovation across the economy.

The Roadmap is expected to be completed in late 2016, with the members of the Expert Working Group announced shortly.

The terms of reference are available for downloaded.
