Virtual Labs investment has huge economic and research impact

Nectar Virtual Laboratories (VLs), which provide digital interfaces, tools and data to online research communities, are generating a return on investment of up to 138 times their cost, according to a new report by Victoria University academics. Estimating the value and impact of Nectar Virtual Laboratories, written by the Victoria Institute of Strategic Economic Studies for the National eResearch Collaboration Tools and Resources project (Nectar), studied three Nectar-supported VLs across different disciplines.

Impact through data access

Many NCRIS capabilities provide access to unique research data to those who need it - either through online portals or directly to researchers in their domain. Sometimes that data is used for further research, other times it can directly support a new discovery. The four stories here represent just a snapshot of the impact that NCRIS projects have through the provision of data access, looked at from four different angles. Download the flyer.
