Brief description This project enables Australian Researchers open, merit based access to the National Computational Infrastructure’s (NCI) high-performance computing facility. The NCI provides researchers in universities, science agencies and industry with world-class, integrated high-performance computing/data services that enable high-impact research in every field of science and technology. The core capital infrastructure is supported through the NCRIS program, and the Administering Organisation and the Partner Organisations fund the operational costs. This project provides 30 per cent of the operational time of the NCI facility to Australian researchers who are not based at a Partner organisation. Benefits include ensuring merit based access to this national facility for all researchers, the acceleration in the design of new materials for the energy, health, and IT sectors, understanding how our oceans and atmosphere drive climate variability and extremes that impacts agricultural production, and the development of novel therapeutics for fighting multidrug-resistant infections.
