Our alliance partners
We are a strategic provider to several major Australian and global organisations. We have built deep connections and rewarding relationships over many years, leading to a mutual commitment to form a strategic alliance. Together we invest in long-term research and innovation to address large scale challenges and generate value.
CSIRO and Boeing's thriving 27 year relationship
Our alliance with Boeing entices the brightest minds to advance innovation in space sciences, advanced materials, energy and direct manufacturing. Together we have delivered a range of technological breakthroughs.
Marine resources, biodiversity and industries
We're working with BP, the South Australian Research and Development Institute, University of Adelaide and Flinders University to unlock the mysteries of the Great Australian Bight's vast area of ocean and coast.
Solving some of Australia’s toughest challenges with GE
Our partnership with GE has led some of the greatest innovations of the last century. We continue to engineer innovative solutions to tackle global challenges and showcase Australian industry; proudly stamping our mark on the next 100 years. We work together to find solutions in resources, energy, healthcare, materials and ICT.
Gas, oil and CO2 storage
The Gas Industry Social and Environmental Research Alliance (GISERA) was founded by CSIRO and Australia Pacific LNG to assess the social, economic and environmental impacts associated with Australia's natural gas industry.
CSIRO and Orica strengthen Australian industry
We have partnered with Orica in a landmark $25 million strategic research alliance. Together we are strengthening Australia’s science capability and placing Australian industry at the forefront of international competition.
WA:ERA partnership focuses on major petroleum industry challenges
We are working with The University of Western Australia and Curtin University on providing solutions to the global energy industry, through WA:ERA.
Visit our interactive map page to see a snapshot of our global work. We do research in diverse range of locations around the world with a wide range of partners. See some of them on a world map.
Our track record in collaborative research
We've achieved amazing results through working on research and innovation with organisations like yours.
We’ve helped Newcrest make a new ore sorting solution economically viable. Together we developed a large-scale sensor for high tonnage, low-grade ore sorting. This has resulted in enormous energy and water usage reductions for Newcrest.
Industry and defence impact case studies
We’ve helped a small Australian business get ready to export overseas. Textor Technologies accelerated their product development by tapping into CSIRO researchers. They’re now manufacturing more innovative products, more efficiently, and have started exporting within the Asia Pacific region.
Gas, oil and CO2 storage
We’ve helped Petronas improve productivity by reducing shut downs. A team of researchers from Petronas and CSIRO have developed an adhesive composite material that can protect and repair damaged sections of subsea pipeline. In addition to being a safer and quicker solution, it reduces the need for extended, costly shut downs.
