Intersect Australia secured $0.5M from the 2015/16 NSW Government Research Attraction & Acceleration Program for NCRIS facilities, following a competitive grants round process. The funding will sustain continuity and momentum in our NSW eResearch Nexus Facility. This facility is the physical foundation for Intersect Space and Time, the digital storage, cloud and supercomputing technologies that underpin innovative and collaborative leading-edge research at member and other research organisations.

Security and personal privacy are of the utmost importance when it comes to health and medical data derived from human study participants. 
Intersect, on behalf of, recently developed a suite of user-friendly guides about eight security technology services that are required to ensure that privacy is maintained when identifiable digital information is stored and used.

Alveo, the Nectar Virtual Lab for Human Communication Science, has secured NCRIS 2016 funding, ensuring continuity of this groundbreaking corpus and platform for another year. Congratulations to Project Manager Dominique Estival and Product Owner Steve Cassidy.

In this new stage, the project team will consolidate operations, deploy the data upload facility requested by users, improve the ingestion of large datasets, such as AusTalk, an audiovisual corpus of modern Australian English and the Trove digitised newspaper corpus.
