CSIRO, the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation, is Australia's national science agency and one of the largest and most diverse research agencies in the world.
Large-scale, long-term, multidisciplinary science to address Australia's major national challenges and opportunities.
CSIRO expertise is organised into 11 research areas
CSIRO manages national facilities and collections that are opened to researchers around Australia and overseas.
Our Manufacturing and Materials research is helping industry through the development of sustainable products, processes and services and by making the manufacture of existing products more sustainable.
Some examples of the scope of CSIRO's research in materials and manufacturing:
We develop advanced agile technologies which leverage digital and information sciences to lift manufacturing productivity and competitiveness.
We develop sustainable, eco-efficient technologies for production of high performance materials which meet a range of industrial and consumer needs.
We produce technologies for sustainable transport, intelligent processes for efficient manufacturing, high-performance lightweight materials, and detectors and sensing systems.
The Future Manufacturing Flagship is taking titanium technologies from ore to more, building on Australia's world ranking reserves of ore, with our portfolio of advanced metal production and fabrication technologies.
We develop new materials and manufacturing processes for the Organic and Large Area Electronics industry (OLAE). Our fully-integrated facilities provide end-to-end capability, allowing us to design new materials, test them in devices and produce prototypes and demonstrators for clients and partners.
Frontier science and technology.
CSIRO develops novel instrumentation based on Superconducting Quantum Interference Devices (SQUIDs) and works in the frontier science of quantum engineering.
We conduct basic and applied research to promote profitable and sustainable fibre and fibrous structure industries, develop new products and improve production and processing efficiencies.
Our work discovers materials at the intersection between the molecular- and nano-scale.
