Our Values

When Data61 was formed, a core set of values was defined. The aim of these values is to shape the day-to-day behaviours and mindset here at Data61, allowing us to do the best work of our careers.

Our values act as the guiding principle for the way we interact with each other, our stakeholders and shape our culture and brand.


Great Impact:

We focus our valuable resources on areas where we can lead globally and have large impact for Australia, to aid our future prosperity and independence.


We are fearless, curious and we improve every day. We strive to excel in research, technology and business, and to work with the best in the world.

Co-Creation of Value:

Everything we do involves co-creation with our network: team, customers and partners. Generously empowering their success is central to our success.

Ownership of Results:

We jointly hold ourselves accountable for our actions. We do this via trust and commitment.

People and their Differences:

We embrace the creativity that comes from the diversity of our people.

Agility and Flexibility:

We view the changing world as an opportunity. This requires agility and flexibility in everything we do; everything changes, except our constant desire to adapt.

Tell it Straight, with Respect:

We say what we mean, mean what we say, and do not mislead, obfuscate or spin. We're direct and always respectful.
