Australia’s innovation catalyst.
It is with great honour and anticipation for the year ahead that I write this foreword. The last year, my first as Chair of CSIRO, has been an overwhelming welcome to the science of CSIRO with innovation at its very heart.
One hundred years ago our nation changed forever when Prime Minister Billy Hughes established the Advisory Council of Science and Industry.
We’re Australia’s leading multidisciplinary research organisation, with talented people working out of 59 centres in Australia and internationally furthering our mission to create benefit for Australia through impactful science and innovation.
We seek to solve problems that matter to Australia and the world, and generate positive impact for today and tomorrow. Here are some examples of our international impacts.
