Our largest international partner is the United States of America, and we also have significant collaboration with Canada. We have long-standing and extensive relationships with government and corporate organisations.

The United States of America is our biggest international partner, and Canada consistently ranks in the top ten of our international partner countries.

Our partners in the USA and Canada include some major R&D organisations, from both the public and private sectors.


In the first half of 2017, we will open an office in the United States to help put Australian science at the centre of the world’s research and technology frontier. The opening of CSIRO US supports the Australian Government’s National Innovation and Science Agenda and will increase Australia’s capacity to bring world-leading technologies to the market. CSIRO US will support the Australian government and partner with the research sector and business - playing the role of Australia’s innovation catalyst on a global scale.

We also have a staff member seconded to Boeing in Seattle and we work closely with the company on new technologies across a number of our research divisions. In 2011 Boeing named CSIRO as its 'Supplier of the Year' for global research and development.
