We currently work with 29 Australian universities and have close links to other world-leading international universities such as Harvard. These are rich, multi-dimensional relationships which add to our technical capability and knowledge base.
PhDs and the power of partnerships
Our own team includes more than 415 resident PhD students, and we draw on the knowledge and capability of summer scholars, visiting researchers and interns.
The co-supervision and funding of PhD students is central to our goal of increasing the number of quality PhD students across all disciplines of data-related science and technology; we believe this is critical to our ongoing ability to remain globally competitive.
To support these objectives Data61 offers a significant number of scholarships to our best and brightest and a stimulating environment in which to excel.
Our researchers typically have adjunct appointments at their local universities, where they contribute to PhD student supervision and undergraduate teaching. Additionally, we partner with universities on collaborative research projects which align with our strategic goals, and jointly bid for research funding from sources such as ARENA.
We may be busy, but we never rest on our laurels: Open Labs Data61, modelled on Berkeley's AMPlab initiative, is just one example of an upcoming project that will create exciting new opportunities for university collaboration.
Let's work together to create our data-driven future.
