Queensland Cyber Infrastructure Foundation

QCIF (The Queensland Cyber Infrastructure Foundation) provides the high-performance services, infrastructure, and support required to achieve excellence in computation and data-driven collaborative research – such as the Tropical Data Hub – and its application in industry. QCIF operates with its members and partners delivering services to research throughout Queensland, and increasingly via Commonwealth programs, to the nation.

QCIF is a not-for-profit company operated by its six members – The University of Queensland, Queensland University of Technology, Griffith University, University of Southern Queensland, Central Queensland University, and James Cook University; the University of the Sunshine Coast is an associate member.
