The Australian Urban Research Infrastructure Network (AURIN) provides researchers, policy makers and decision makers access to datasets and services through the AURIN Portal and associated sites administered by AURIN or accessible through aurin.org.au (including all subdomains) (the AURIN Site). The AURIN Site includes the sites listed on the Workbench page, as updated from time to time.
The University of Melbourne, as AURIN’s lead agent, administers, operates and controls AURIN. The AURIN Site is copyright © The University of Melbourne 2011 – 2016.
You need an account to access the AURIN Portal and parts of the AURIN Workbench that provide access by secure login.
Access to the AURIN Portal is restricted to people associated with our collaborator institutions, and approved researchers, policy-makers and decision-makers. If you are a member of an organisation with Australian Access Federation (AAF) credentials you do not need any separate registration to use the AURIN Portal. You can log in using your institution’s username and password. If your organisation does not have AAF credentials, you can apply for an account in the AAF Virtual Home Organisation. These accounts allow access to the AURIN Portal at AURIN’s discretion.
Please keep your login details confidential and secure. You may only access the AURIN Portal using your own personal login credentials. You must not share your account with anyone else. Please tell us if you suspect that the security of your account has been compromised, or if your account has been used by an unauthorised person or in an unauthorised way, by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
Access to other parts of the AURIN Site is not restricted at this time, however AURIN reserves the right to deny you access if you do not comply with these terms, or to introduce access restrictions in the future.
