In her first engagement on being re-commissioned, the NSW Minister for Science and Medical Research, Hon. Jodi McKay MP has opened Intersect's new premises. "Can I say how pleased I am to be here with you as the Minister for Science and Research. I was sworn in again about an hour ago," said the Minister.
"The new premises we open today will enlarge Intersect's capacity to provide specialised ICT solutions for our research sector," she said. "The NSW Government has provided $2.8 million in funding to help establish this institute through the Science Leveraging Fund, which provides money for essential infrastructure that allows organisations such as Intersect to leverage important Commonwealth and philanthropic funds," the Minister pointed out.
"The work of Intersect is a prime example of the kind of clever thinking and effective use of emerging technologies that make NSW Australia's clever State," the Minister said.
