Supporting digital research methods: the Melbourne experience

In this talk I will discuss the Petascale Campus Initiative, a program at The University of Melbourne to boost access to computational and data management resources for all faculties at the univeristy. With Melbourne is a large, comprehensive univeristy, and so balancing the needs of medicine, fine arts, physics, and architecture has its challenges. In addition to hardware, the Initiative is also committed to developing a workforce of data and computer scientists that can support reserachers in the academy to make use of digital technology in their research. This workforce (the Melbourne Data Analytics Platform – MDAP) is unique in Australia, and rare in the world, in that it is comprised of academics whose “KPI” are built around supporting research, not necessarily leading independent reserarch. The talk will discuss the journey in establishing MDAP at Melbourne; the challenges and the successes.
