The Australian Research Data Commons (ARDC) provides Australian researchers with competitive advantage through data.

The ARDC does this by enabling the Australian research community and industry access to nationally significant, data intensive digital research infrastructure, platforms, skills and collections of high quality data.

As a national research infrastructure provider, the ARDC facilitates partnerships to develop a coherent research environment that enables researchers to find, access, contribute to and effectively use services to maximise research quality and impact.

The ARDC is supported by the Australian Government’s National Collaborative Research Infrastructure Strategy (NCRIS).
