Australia's national science agency

We imagine. We collaborate. We innovate. We're Australia's national science research agency. At CSIRO, we solve the greatest challenges using innovative science and technology.

We are one of the largest and most diverse scientific research organisations in the world. Our research focuses on the biggest challenges facing the nation. We also manage national research infrastructure and collections.

Narrator: A catalyst, it creates a reaction. 

[Images flash through of swirling clouds, an explosion, an eye under a microscope and a light globe]

It creates change faster.

CSIRO is Australia’s innovation catalyst.

We bring Australia’s innovation ecosystem together to transform Australia’s big challenges into global opportunities.

[Images flash through of the globe with interconnecting lines across it, a piece of equipment, a wind farm, a human skull diagram with a yellow eye socket, and interconnecting lines on a map]

We collaborate with our partners across industry, government, research and community to make it all happen.

We seek and seize what’s next on the horizon.

We create solutions through science.

[Image changes to show a hexapod moving across the ground and then the image changes to show an aerial view looking down on a multi solar panel site and the camera pans around the site]

CSIRO is Australia’s national science agency. 

[Images move through of a profile view and then facing view of a male moving along and then the male looking at data on a very large screen and then the image changes to show a wind farm]

We wake up each morning because we’re making tomorrow and the future better, better for people, for business and for the planet.

[Images move through to show an aerial view of two cars moving through a satellite dish array, one of the satellite dishes rotating around, a crater type mountain and a formula being written on a window]

We believe change is good but transformation is better and innovation is where it starts.

[Images flash through of pinpoints of light which morph into many science description words and then morph into a network of lines encasing a sphere, then into an eye, and then into the CSIRO logo]

The CSIRO, Australia’s innovation catalyst, your innovation catalyst.
