The DART project is an ambitious proof-of-concept project to develop tools to support the new collaborative research infrastructure of the future. The project aims to enable researchers and reviewers to access original and analysed data, collaborate around the creation of research outputs, stored publications, plus add content, annotations and notes. It will also look at the collection of large datasets, including the remote control and automated data collection.
The DART project is funded by the Australian Commonwealth Government’s Department of Education, Science and Training (DEST), through to the end of 2006. The funding has been provided through the Systemic Infrastructure Initiative (SII) as part of the Commonwealth Government's Backing Australia's Ability – Building Our Future Through Science and Innovation. DART is part of the collective Managed Environment for Research Repository Infrastructure (MERRI) set of projects.
