Australia’s capacity to undertake and apply humanities research relies on the quality and sustainability of its data and infrastructure, and the robustness of its training and workforce capability. This report Scan provides an overview of the current landscape for humanities data-enabled research and identifies strategic needs and requirements, gaps in infrastructure, and potential opportunities for leadership, advocacy, and planning.

The Australian Academy of the Humanities is invested in ensuring the humanities have the best available national infrastructure to meet both urgent and longer-term research priorities, to create and collaborate at scale, and to facilitate digital and data transformation.

This report identifies a set of opportunities for leadership, advocacy and planning for national data infrastructure in the humanities:

  • Sustainable data and digital research infrastructure
  • Training and capability pathways
  • Scaling up the application of humanities expertise to the cultural, social, and human dimensions of global problems is essential.
  • Strategic networks and industry partnerships are needed
  • Building capability in data enabled research needs to be prioritised and planned.
