Investment for the development of the DReSA portal

DReSA received investments from the Pawsey Supercomputing Research Centre (Pawsey) and the Australian Research Data Commons (ARDC).

Pawsey and ARDC are funded by the National Collaborative Research Infrastructure Strategy (NCRIS).

The Team

The idea for a training registry and calendar had been bubbling away for some time. Seen by trainers and training providers as a challenge to tackle, DReSA was born out of the need to improve the discoverability of training. The Working Group formed at the ARDC Skills Summit 2020, as a result of active participation, collaboration and a common objective. A key first step was to scan the landscape for similar solutions, with the Working Group identifying ELIXIR's TeSS platform as a likely exemplar. From there began a truly collaborative and global partnership with ELIXIR and an exchange of the infrastructure that underlies TeSS, and also ideas, support and encouragement.
