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.


In early 2017, we opened 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 increases Australia's capacity to bring world-leading technologies to the market. CSIRO US supports the Australian government and we partner with the research sector and business - playing the role of Australia's innovation catalyst on a global scale. CSIRO US facilitates relationships with North American Global and Fortune 1000 organisations, government agencies, universities, and research institutions to turn big ideas into disruptive products.
