NICTA was established in 2002 by the Federal Government as part of the Backing Australia’s Ability initiative, following a competitive bid process. In addition to the Federal Government, NICTA was supported and funded by its four founding Members: the Australian Capital Territory Government, Australian National University, New South Wales Government and University of New South Wales. Since then, The University of Sydney, University of Melbourne, Victorian Government, Queensland Government, Griffith University, Queensland University of Technology and The University of Queensland have become funding and contributing Partners.
NICTA is now a national organisation with five laboratories in four cities: Melbourne, Sydney, Canberra and Brisbane. At the core of their endeavours is a unique approach to fostering and developing ICT research.
