Where we're at
READ OR CONTRIBUTE to a high-level summary of how far Australian social science has come in eResearch infrastructure.
What's needed next
Contribute to a live scenario-planning exercise, to identify the eResearch capabilities that are needed in the next five to ten years:
- SCENARIO 1: Social Mobility
Maximising impact with present capabilities
“A lack of social mobility (a shift in a person’s socioeconomic position) imposes costs on society, including the squandering of people’s talents, and undermining productivity and economic growth. Social mobility is likely lower in Australia than in some developed countries (mainly Scandinavian and Nordic countries) and higher than in others (most notably the United States). Research and data on the passing of disadvantage (and advantage) from one generation to the next is important for developing a better understanding of how social mobility operates in Australia.”

- SCENARIO 2: Nutrition and Food Security
New realities, new capabilities, new research realms
- SCENARIO 3: Collective memory
Problem scoping and efficiency in a data rich world
