Industry and defence impact case studies

We've worked with Defence to improve armour, our research underpinned the success of WLAN technology, and our partnerships with industry have resulted in more precise mineral exploration, safer mining techniques, smart technology to reduce energy consumption and innovative new designs for textiles.

Science and Industry Endowment Fund (SIEF)

The Science and Industry Endowment Fund (SIEF) provides grants to science and scientists for the purposes of assisting Australian industry, furthering the interests of the Australian community and contributing to the achievement of Australian national objectives. SIEF, an independent body, has supported many CSIRO led projects with the following impact case studies forming part of an independent assessment conducted by ACIL Allen in 2016.
