We're creating Australia's data-driven future

CSIRO, Australia’s national science agency, has been solving the nation’s greatest challenges with solutions from science for over 100 years.  While many of the challenges are ever present - sustainable energy and resources, food security and quality, growing our future industries, for example - how we are solving those challenges has only accelerated with technology.

And CSIRO’s data and digital specialist data sciences arm, Data61, is at the forefront of data and digital in solving our greatest data-driven challenges today. We believe Australia can lead the world in change and not just respond to it.

CSIRO’s Data61 was officially formed in 2016 from the integration of CSIRO’s Digital Productivity flagship and the National ICT Australia Ltd (NICTA).

To create a better world for the future generations, we’re bringing together the innovation ecosystem and building a global applied R&D network of partners in government, industry and academia called the D61+ Network.

Through the D61+Network we will align our collective capabilities with Australia’s national interests and help Australia create new technology-based industries that can reach global scale.

How can we work with you?

Data science, engineering and design are at the core of what we do. As your applied R&D partner, we offer advisory services, deep research to inform decision making, proof of concepts, product and platform development and breakthrough technologies that can transform existing industries and seed new ones.

With more than 1,000 staff, including 300+ resident PhD students, we’re Australia’s leading digital research powerhouse.

Being part of CSIRO, Australia’s innovation catalyst, means we offer deep domain expertise across a wide range of industries. We’re just as much at home working in safety and security, smart cities, personalised health and wellness, food provenance, industrial internet (machine learning, big data, IoT), regtech, robotics, and data-driven government as we are developing planning, decision making and social media tools, visualisation techniques and collaboration platforms.
