Dear colleagues,

The Department of Education, Skills and Employment (DESE) has released an exposure draft of the 2021 National Research Infrastructure (NRI) Roadmap<https://2021nriroadmap.dese.gov.au/get-involved/exposure-draft/>.  An NRI roadmap is produced every 5 years and is an important high-level document for guiding investment into the infrastructure projects that will drive research in Australia.   The roadmap also influences the NCRIS investment that organisations like Astronomy Australia Ltd use to help facilitate access for Australian astronomers to research infrastructure.

In the past we have aimed for this document to have some mention of Astronomy's highest infrastructure priorities as defined by the Decadal Plan.  The current draft does mention some of Astronomy’s high-priority infrastructure objectives (e.g. SKA, gravitational wave detection, HPC, & GMT) but it has neglected to mention ESO.

I encourage everyone to have a look over the document and provide feedback to DESE on this draft.  Most institutions will also provide institutional level feedback and so you might consider feeding into those processes at your institutions.

Feedback on the NRI roadmap must be submitted to DESE by 22 December.
