HQ Country
As Australia's national science agency, CSIRO has been pushing the boundaries of what's possible for over 85 years. Today we have close to 6,500 talented people working out of 58 centres in Australia and internationally. Our people work closely with industry and communities to achieve lasting scientific impact. As part of these efforts, we have developed significant expertise in printed organic and inorganic electronics. With potential application in consumer electronics, building-integrated products and energy production, our work will add value to existing segments of the manufacturing industry and create a new wave of niche industries based on nanotechnology.
