IELab is a collaborative project and as such there is no designated owner or fixed team. The platform was originally developed by researchers from nine collaborating institutions:
|University of Sydney|
|University of New South Wales|
|University of South Australia|
|Griffith University, Brisbane|
|University of Queensland|
|Federation University Australia|
|University of Melbourne|
|CSIRO Ecosystem Sciences, Canberra|
It was funded under the NeCTAR scheme. NeCTAR is an Australian Government project conducted as part of the Super Science initiative and financed by the Education Investment Fund (2009-2013).
The IELab project is governed by a Steering Committee (SC), which includes representatives from the founding members as well as the ABS and other project partners. Representatives are invited to attend meetings in an ex-officio capacity. The SC makes a continuous effort to consult and engage the broader research and user community. A Technical Advisory Group (TAG), comprised of experts from eResearch and Industrial Ecology projects, advises the SC in technical and strategic questions. The Management Team (MT) overseas the day-to-day operation of the infrastructure and suggests a future development agenda to the SC.
