eResearch in Australia has a bright future and will be enriched by the Nectar initiative ... we support the Nectar's vision of the connected researcher who at the desktop or bench top has access to workflow-enabled, richly integrated research infrastructure on a national scale.

HuNI helped me to see the connections in my research topic with other areas, including theatre, design and fashion.

The opportunity to build HuNI has been extraordinary for the humanities, arts and social sciences in Australia. This is a complete game changer in the humanities, arts, and social sciences sector, and we just can’t underestimate the impact it’s going to have.

Nectar funding has enabled the biodiversity and climate change research community to develop a unique and a comprehensive tool that dramatically reduces the time and effort required to complete ecology and climate change analysis utilising large data. The program has also enabled new collaboration, research and teaching and learning outputs.
Nectar is supported by the Australian Government through the National Collaborative Research Infrastructure Strategy to establish eResearch infrastructure in partnership with Australian research institutions, organisations and research communities. The University of Melbourne has been appointed as the Lead Agent.
