(CIRES)

Objectives

Enable organisations to leverage insights and evidence to unleash the value of data in approaching economic and social challenges.

  • To lift the socio-technical barriers to responsible and agile value creation from data with end-to-end solutions for resilience in information value chains.
  • To build capacity in Australian organisations for value creation from data by training of future leaders in emerging digital technologies.
  • To create transformational change in Australia’s knowledge economy through research-industry partnerships that transcend disciplinary and sector boundaries.

Purpose

Empower government, industries, universities and the wider community to understand and unlock the value of data by:

  • Solving real-world barriers to leveraging data technology for impact and enabling better data pipelines.
  • Developing capabilities and skills to become information resilient and data driven ensuring actions derived from data are ethical, productive, cost-efficient and effective.
  • Contributing to the ongoing development of data literacy by supporting a critical and creative stance towards data-use and how data is used to influence choice and behaviours.
  • Collaborating across the sector to bring the best minds, intentions and attitudes together to address identified research challenges.
