The Australian Urban Research Infrastructure Network (AURIN) is a $20 million initiative funded through the Australian Government’s Super Science scheme. The project runs to the end of March 2015. AURIN aims to support research into the urban and built environment domain. This will be achieved through developing an advanced e-Infrastructure offering seamless, secure access to a range of distributed data sets, services and tools. The Melbourne eResearch Group is directly involved in the AURIN project in the design, development and delivery of the e-Infrastructure.
