Partners and collaborators

ACCESS-NRI is enabled by the Australian Government, Department of Education, Employment and Skills (DESE) through the National Collaborative Research Infrastructure Strategy (NCRIS).




We are a partnership between the Bureau of Meteorology, CSIRO and five Australian universities, in collaboration with national and international partners.


ACCESS-NRI modelling relies on computational and data resources from high-performance supercomputers operated by Australia’s National Computational Infrastructure (NCI) located at The Australian National University.

ACCESS is a complex software system, now at more than 3½ million lines of code that generates massive data files used for scientific analysis which must be stored, indexed and made accessible to the wider research community.

ACCESS-NRI partnership participants include:
