Our impact

We boost Australia's potential through excellent science that provides positive economic, environmental and social impacts. Across our organisation, we ensure this continues by embedding our impact model, planning and monitoring, evaluation and reporting.

  • Our impact model

    We have a consistent, organisation-wide approach to planning research and managing its impact, which promotes understanding and demonstration of its real-world value.

  • Planning and monitoring our impact

    To ensure our science responds to national challenges and opportunities, we continually collect and analyse evidence and report on our progress along the 'impact pathways' set out in our impact model.

  • Evaluating our impact

    In our Strategy 2020, we laid out our mission to create value for customers through innovation that delivers positive impact for Australia. Each year we provide our stakeholders with robust evidence that we're achieving this goal.

  • Reporting our impact

    We regularly report on our impact and performance, including in our Annual Report and independent reviews of our economic, social and environmental impact.

  • Our impact in action

    We help grow Australia's productivity through excellent science that provides a positive impact for Australia. These case studies show how we have applied our research to challenges, improving lives, creating wealth and ongoing benefits to society.
