What does the eResearch team do?

The eResearch team at Western Sydney University works primarily on a project basis. Our aim is to work to explore and survey new research techniques and technologies in partnership with intrepid researchers. We then assist the operational parts of the University to turn those cutting-edge techniques into supported 'business as usual' services.

The eResearch team works with major stakeholders:

  • Researchers
  • REDI
  • Information Technology Digital Services (ITDS)
  • The University Library.

We work with these stakeholders to:

  • Establish eResearch infrastructure at Western Sydney University for data, computing and collaboration purposes.
  • Embed eResearch in the organisation, particularly helping ITDS to build services for research.
  • Connect University researchers to national research infrastructure, and partner with research teams on specific projects.
