We work on projects across Africa and the Middle East, including South Africa, Kenya, Uganda and Saudi Arabia.
Our work in Africa has traditionally been focused on agriculture, but has expanded in recent years to include radio astronomy, ICT and other areas.
We're involved in a number of research and development consortia driving the design and validation process of the Square Kilometre Array, a next-generation international radio telescope that will be vastly more sensitive than the best present-day instruments.
The SKA will be implemented across two main sites: the CSIRO-run Murchison Radio-astronomy Observatory and surrounding Australian Radio-Quiet Zone, and in southern Africa. This is increasing the opportunities for collaboration between CSIRO and researchers in southern Africa, exemplified by the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding between CSIRO and CSIR South Africa in 2014.
The Middle East has been the site of CSIRO international activities in areas as broad as aquaculture, grains research and renewable energy.
Our collaborators in Africa and the Middle East include:
