Creating the National Collaborative Roadmap

The Roadmap consists of Action Plans from institutions and stakeholder groups.

For the latest news and updates on the National PID Strategy and Roadmap, subscribe to the ARDC Newsletter.

Develop an Action Plan

The ARDC is on hand to provide assistance - book a workshop.

Organisations in the Australian research and innovation sector are invited to develop and share action plans for their implementation of PIDs.

By following the stakeholder action plan template, organisations can identify opportunities for improvement under the outcomes of the National PID Strategy.

We have prepared example action plans for research institutions (including universities) and NCRIS facilities (and other research infrastructure providers).

Submit an Action Plan

Once your organisation has developed an action plan, we invite you to submit it for inclusion here.

Join a Stakeholder Action Group

The ARDC is convening a number of Stakeholder Action Groups to drive activity on PIDs in Australia
