Education Investment Fund Super Science Initiative

The Super Science Initiative addressed priorities identified in the 2008 Strategic Roadmap for Australian Research Infrastructure and contributed $1.1 billion to priority areas of Australian research until 2013. $989 million of this money is for research infrastructure that will make a lasting contribution to Australian science. These infrastructure investments are being funded from the Education Investment Fund, which is one of the three Nation-building Funds established by the Nation-building Funds Act 2008.
