NSW Government launches Research Map
1 September 2015
NSW research strengths
The NSW Government has launched a new geospatial database showcasing the state's higher education, research & development capabilities.
The NSW Research Map is a virtual 'one-stop shop' for information about more than 650 organisations and pieces of critical Research & Development (R&D) infrastructure across NSW.
The NSW Research Map was developed by Intersect Australia and jointly-funded by the Office of the NSW Chief Scientist & Engineer and StudyNSW.
The tool will help international students learn about NSW higher education and R&D strengths in a simple and practical manner. Students can target their areas of interest and make informed choices about study and research options, ensuring they make the most of their time here.
Users can access information about the state's 11 public universities – including course information for domestic and international undergraduate, postgraduate and research students, and their research centres and facilities.
The map also provides important information about the NSW research sector, including:
* Prestigious Australian Research Council Centres of Excellence headquarters or nodes located in NSW
* Cooperative Research Centres headquartered or with nodes here
* Publicly-funded research agencies, such as ANSTO and CSIRO
* NSW government agencies with a research function
* Health and medical research centres, institutes and hubs
* National Collaborative Research Infrastructure Strategy (NCRIS) facilities and other critical research infrastructure
* NSW Knowledge Hubs
* Industrial, technology and business parks
