Australian National Fabrication Facility A company established under NCRIS to provide nano and micro-fabrication facilities for Australia’s researchers
The National Collaborative Research Infrastructure strategy (NCRIS) was announced in the 2004-2005 budget as part of the Backing Australia’s Ability – Building Our Future through Science and Innovation package. NCRIS is providing $542 million from 2004-05 to 2010-2011 to develop and fund national research infrastructure projects. NCRIS
