Australian National Data Service (ANDS) makes Australia's research data assets more valuable for researchers, research institutions and the nation. We have trusted partnerships with research institutions around Australia, providing reliable data-related services and helping enhance Australia's research data capability.

National eResearch Collaboration Tools and Resources project (Nectar) provides online infrastructure that supports researchers to connect with colleagues in Australia and around the world, using and sharing data, models, analysis tools and workflows. Nectar offers Virtual Labs and the National Research Cloud used by research institutions across many domains.

Research Data Services (RDS)
project enables researchers to easily store, discover, access and share their data for better research outcomes. Through partnering Node Operators, the RDS project supports service development for prioritised research domains/disciplines and continued operational support for existing infrastructure.

Together ANDS, Nectar and RDS are collaborating to provide high quality research data infrastructure and support. We are funded by the Australian Government through the National Collaborative Research Infrastructure Strategy (NCRIS) program.
