Welcome to the National Research Network Project

The National Research Network (NRN) Project, an initiative of the Department of Innovation, Industry, Science and Research, is funded from the Education Investment Fund under the Super Science (Future Industries) initiative.  The Project is an element in the Future Industries measure of the Commonwealth's Super Science initiative.

In August 2010 the Department announced the appointment of the University of South Australia as Lead Agent for the Project.

The NRN Project comprises twelve Component Projects which have been selected to extend and enhance the Australian Research and Education Network (AREN).

The purpose of this web site is to provide component stakeholders and the wider research community with information about the NRN project as it develops.
