Performing high-quality science that delivers results with relevance and impact across areas of importance for Australia, is what drives us each and every day.
CSIRO – the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation – is one of the largest and most diverse scientific organisations in the world. It has over 6,400 staff located across 54 sites throughout Australia and one overseas.
The Council for Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR) was established in 1926 with its primary research devoted towards agriculture.
Here are just a few examples of the impact CSIRO has on our lives, our industries and our environment.
CSIRO has had a robust twelve months and despite difficult economic pressures nationally and globally has delivered on its strategy and commitments.
