ARC LIEF grant for Linked Semantic Platforms project

This project aims to develop the next generation of decision-support tools for interdisciplinary research on critical public policy issues. The project will use linked open data, knowledge graphs and collaborations across existing research infrastructure projects. Expected outcomes include inter-operability across major social science databases and new analytical tools that will transform the research capabilities for evidence-based policy making. Outcomes are expected on sustainable built environments and transport in urban and regional communities, social care and health in the community, work and wellbeing, digital inclusion and digital health.
