About ICRI

Hosted biennially, the International Conference on Research Infrastructures is the major professional forum for the global research infrastructure community. ICRI 2024 will bring together policymakers, research institution leaders, facility operators, users and researchers, to discuss pressing topics of interest, trends and challenges facing research infrastructures around the world.

ICRI 2024 will be hosted in the beautiful city of Brisbane (Meanjin in Aboriginal language), the capital of the state of Queensland in Australia, traditionally owned by the Turrbal and Jagera People. With a population of 2.52 million, Brisbane is Australia’s third largest city and is situated in the southeastern coastal region of Queensland. 

Brisbane is home to four world-class universities, more than 100 pioneering health and biotech facilities and a strong business and entrepreneurial ecosystem. The region has a proven record of achievement in hosting global business events, including the G20 Leaders’ Summit, World Congress of Science and Factual Producers, and the IEEE Conference on Robotics and Automation. It has also been selected as the host city for the 2032 Summer Olympic and Paralympic Games.

Brisbane International Airport is located 20 minutes from the city centre and provides access to direct flight routes reaching destinations in Asia, North America and Europe. Brisbane is close to some of Australia’s most famous coastal regions, including the Gold Coast (60-minute drive) and the Great Barrier Reef (100-minute flight). 

We are currently exploring a range of exciting and thought-provoking themes related to research infrastructure. Stay tuned for more information soon.
