AURIN

At AURIN we make hard-to-get data accessible—supporting innovative research on sustainable and resilient cities and towns. By building and providing complex digital infrastructure, we empower Australian researchers to address the greatest urban and regional challenges facing us today.

We specialize in doing the legwork on behalf of the researchers, with the aim to eliminate the time-consuming tasks researchers go through when starting a new project. We streamline access to a wide range of crucial datasets, which are all integrated to work together. Our aim is to lower technological barriers, open data access and increase information sharing amongst scientific communities.

AURIN’s existing digital infrastructure primarily supports research in transport, housing, labour markets, urban and regional planning, impacts of urban environments on population health, liveability and sustainability. Over the next five-year period AURIN aims to lead a national consortium, focused on establishing the foundations for Australia’s Urban Digital Twins, to address climate change, energy transition, and changing demographics.

There is no cost to access most of AURIN’s data – and data that has a charge attached is through the provider of that data. Visit our website to see how we can assist you.
