Book release: Nectar Impact

I am delighted to present Nectar Impact, which documents the research impact of the  National eResearch Collaboration Tools and Resources project (Nectar), under the National Collaborative Research Infrastructure Strategy (NCRIS).

Nectar is a $61 million investment by the Australian Government in research, providing an online infrastructure that supports researchers to: collaborate and share ideas and research outcomes; connect with colleagues in Australia and around the world; and ultimately contribute to our collective knowledge, in order to make a significant impact on our society.

Nectar Impact documents the work of the Nectar Virtual Laboratories, rich online environments that are built and led by the Australian research sector; and the Nectar Research Cloud, which provides computing infrastructure, software and services that allow Australia’s research community to store, access, and run data, remotely, rapidly and autonomously.

Nectar looks forward to continuing to partner with Australia’s research communities to facilitate improved collaborative outcomes between research and industry, health, education and government.


Yours sincerely

Associate Professor Glenn Moloney

Director, Nectar
