The Academy of the Social Sciences in Australia, the Australian Academy of Humanities, the Australasian Council of Deans of Arts, Social Sciences and Humanities and the Australian Research Council (ARC) are convening a free one-day workshop for humanities and social sciences (HASS) researchers on the ARC’s Linkage Infrastructure, Equipment and Facilities (LIEF) scheme.

HASS research is increasingly data-intensive and the LIEF scheme performs an important role in the Australian research infrastructure ecosystem. This workshop will feature presentations and roundtable sessions with representatives from the Australian Research Council and past and current LIEF projects who will share insights on the application and assessment process, advice on developing partnerships, and strategies for success.

This is a free event, open to researchers, research support staff, eResearch practitioners and members of the broader infrastructure community. We encourage you to register early as places are limited.
