Monash e-Research Centre (MeRC)


The Monash e-Research Centre (MeRC) uses the latest information and communication technologies (ICT) to encourage collaborative research.

We connect local and global researchers, enabling them to share and manage their research in a way that is faster and more secure.

Our services improve the efficiency and speed of studies and experiments. This means our researchers can process and manage research data thousands of times faster than if they used conventional methods.

We offer specialist advice and customised e-research solutions, including:

  • High performance computing
  • Modelling and simulation facilities
  • Storage and management of research data
  • Advanced collaboration platforms
  • Visualisation platforms
  • Specialised server hosting

MeRC is a partnership between the Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Research), the Office of the CIO, the Library and the Faculty of IT.
