Humanities, Arts and Social Science researchers will get access to cutting-edge online tools and services thanks to $1.1 million in new funds for a collaborative virtual laboratory project.

The Humanities, Arts and Social Sciences (HASS) Data Enhanced Virtual Lab (DEVL) will bring together fragmented data, tools and services into a shared workspace.

Key outcomes from the project will be:

  • Lowering barriers to entry for HASS infrastructure
  • Increased interoperability between existing HASS platforms
  • More joined up data landscape
  • Data curation for better reuse, reproduction, and publishing of research data sets
  • Game-changing skills and training activities

The project will receive $625,000 from ANDS, Nectar and RDS through their joint DEVL/RDC program. That funding will be boosted by another $475,000 in co-investment by project partners, taking the project’s total investment to $1.1 million.

Partner organisations include:

  • eResearch SA Limited (University of South Australia, University of Adelaide and Flinders University)
  • Australian Data Archive (Australian National University)
  • Alveo (Macquarie University)
  • AURIN
  • University of Melbourne
