CSIRO is building on the strong foundation of our existing partnerships in ASEAN to grow the region's scientific excellence, connect great innovations to the market, and create collaborative networks.

Our deep connections across the Australian innovation ecosystem provide an entry into all Australian universities, and major Australian industries. Through the National Science and Technology Accelerator ON, CSIRO can also connect to a range of Australian start-up and spin-out companies. We can also connect to the CSIRO Innovation Fund, managed by Main Sequence Ventures.

CSIRO and our partners are harnessing the power of innovative science and technology to solve the region's greatest challenges. We collaborate on projects in areas including food security, agriculture, aquaculture, water management, biosecurity, disaster management, energy, climate variability, mining technology and health.

CSIRO has an active number of science, commercial and research for development engagements across Indonesia, Vietnam, Thailand, Malaysia and Philippines.

To support our research engagement in each of these markets, we have dedicated representatives and strong partnerships with Australian Government departments.

Five ways we can work together in ASEAN

  • Create IP to address major regional challenges
  • Discover new Australian innovations through CSIRO's ON network
  • Access world leading facilities and technologies
  • Connect to Australian deep tech businesses expanding across ASEAN
  • License existing technology.
