International Conference on Research Infrastructures. 3-5 December 2024 | Brisbane, Australia

Hosted biennially, the International Conference on Research Infrastructures is the major professional forum for the global research infrastructure community. ICRI 2024 will bring together policymakers, research institution leaders, facility operators, users and researchers, to discuss pressing topics of interest, trends and challenges facing research infrastructures around the world.

Brisbane (Meanjin in Aboriginal language), the capital of the state of Queensland in Australia.

ICRI 2024 will be hosted in the beautiful city of Brisbane (Meanjin in Aboriginal language), the capital of the state of Queensland in Australia, traditionally owned by the Turrbal and Jagera People. With a population of 2.52 million, Brisbane is Australia’s third largest city and is situated in the southeastern coastal region of Queensland.

Brisbane is home to four world-class universities, more than 100 pioneering health and biotech facilities and a strong business and entrepreneurial ecosystem. The region has a proven record of achievement in hosting global business events, including the G20 Leaders’ Summit, World Congress of Science and Factual Producers, and the IEEE Conference on Robotics and Automation. It has also been selected as the host city for the 2032 Summer Olympic and Paralympic Games.

Brisbane International Airport is located 20 minutes from the city centre and provides access to direct flight routes reaching destinations in Asia, North America and Europe. Brisbane is close to some of Australia’s most famous coastal regions, including the Gold Coast (60-minute drive) and the Great Barrier Reef (100-minute flight).


CSIRO – Delivery Partner

ICRI 2024 will be delivered by Australia’s national science agency, CSIRO (the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation). With a history extending over 100 years, CSIRO is focused on solving the greatest challenges through innovative science and technology. One of the world’s largest multidisciplinary and mission-driven research organisations, CSIRO works with universities, governments, businesses, industries, and communities worldwide.

CSIRO has sites in major city and regional centres throughout Australia, including Brisbane. It also hosts research infrastructures and scientific collections on behalf of the nation, including the Marine National Facility, the Pawsey Supercomputing Centre, the Atlas of Living Australia, and other facilities. The organisation also manages major facilities for international partners, like the European Space Agency’s deep space ground station in Australia (Norcia Ground Station) and the SKA Project, an international effort to build the world’s largest radio astronomy observatory.

Australian Department of Education

One of the great strengths of Australia’s research infrastructure is its collaborative nature, which is key to driving greater innovation in the sector. The Department of Education funds the National Collaborative Research Infrastructure Strategy (NCRIS), which connects and strategically invests in open access to equipment, online datasets and tools, and technical expertise. NCRIS makes research infrastructure accessible to academic researchers, industry, government, and citizen scientists across the country and around the world.

Australia has a strong history as a partner and leader in international research, and research infrastructure has an important role in developing international linkages and contributing to the production and dissemination of knowledge. NCRIS projects, including Phenomics Australia, – and other research infrastructure facilities around Australia – drive international collaborations at scales from institutional to government-to-government, and in fields from social sciences to nuclear physics.
