The University of Western Sydney (UWS) has joined Intersect, becoming the ninth university member.
UWS's Pro Vice-Chancellor (Research), Prof Andrew Cheetham says, "It is clear that eResearch techniques are the way of the future and that our ability to maintain close national and international research collaborations will depend on our eResearch infrastructure. UWS is very keen to start working in collaboration with Intersect to pursue mutually advantageous strategic priorities in particular to ensure connectivity and exposure of research carried out at UWS".
Intersect CEO Ian Gibson says, "We welcome the University of Western Sydney to Intersect. UWS brings its research strengths in society, health and the environment, along with a strategic focus on deploying eResearch solutions across its six campuses. We look forward to working with UWS and hope that UWS sees the same high value from Intersect as our other members".
