Humanities, Arts and Social Science researchers will get access to cutting-edge online tools and services thanks to $1.1 million in new funds for a collaborative virtual laboratory project. The Humanities, Arts and Social Sciences (HASS) Data Enhanced Virtual Lab (DEVL) will bring together fragmented data, tools and services into a shared workspace.
Key outcomes from the project will be:
- Lowering barriers to entry for HASS infrastructure
- Increased interoperability between existing HASS platforms
- More joined up data landscape
- Data curation for better reuse, reproduction, and publishing of research data sets
- Game-changing skills and training activities
The project will receive $625,000 from ANDS, Nectar and RDS through their joint DEVL/RDC program. That funding will be boosted by another $475,000 in co-investment by project partners, taking the project’s total investment to $1.1 million.
Partner organisations include:
- eResearch SA Limited (University of South Australia, University of Adelaide and Flinders University)
- Australian Data Archive (Australian National University)
- Alveo (Macquarie University)
- University of Melbourne
- Griffith University
