Our locations and global achievements

Since 1926, we have sought to solve problems that matter to Australia and the world and generate positive impact for today and tomorrow. In 2014–15 we continued this legacy. Here are just some examples of our international impacts.

NORTH AMERICA

We licensed our Remote-I technology to Silicon Valley spin-off TeleMedC, which plans to take the technology to the US and world market as part of its ‘EyeScan’ diagnostic solution.

AFRICA

We are helping tackle the problem of the African cassava whitefly in close partnership with East African scientists.

LATIN AMERICA

The Chilean National Service of Fisheries and Aquaculture (SERNAPESCA) received funding from the Chilean Ministry of Economy to support CSIRO for the Aqua-Atlantis project to improve the sustainability of the aquaculture industry in Chile.

EUROPE

We built high-performance heliostats at the frontier of solar technology in Cyprus with a low cost design allowing them to be installed affordably. CSIRO lab in Montpellier, France.

SOUTH ASIA

We completed a capacity building project in India, focused on eco-toxicological tools for management of environmental pollution.

CHINA

We forged a future in green steel making by creating smart technology that reduces water and energy use and greenhouse gas emissions while sustaining metal production.

We are helping to enhance the capacity and reporting systems of Indonesia’s National Carbon Accounting System to meet international greenhouse gas reporting requirements under the UNFCCC.

JAPAN

A South Australian automotive industry company is using our technology to build heliostats for Japan.

SOUTH-EAST ASIA

We have signed a two-year, $1 million collaboration agreement with a Singapore partner to develop metal powders for 3D printing.

CONNECTED

Our connections with international universities and research institutes link us to the 97 per cent of research that happens outside Australia.

We are also working in the Middle East, South Korea, and the Pacific, in areas such as agriculture, astronomy, climate variability, energy, fisheries, food, mining, oceanography, and water.
