WHAT WE DO
THE GATEWAY TO
We are the gateway to Australia’s
defence science capability
We are uniquely positioned within Australia’s science and technology landscape, with strong links across defence and national security-related industry, government and academia. Our experienced team provides independent, impartial advice to foster connections and collaborations, and bring together disparate entities in pursuit of a common objective.
We bring people and solutions together
One of our key roles is matching people from different sectors looking for specific capability, commercial solutions or funding opportunities. DSI identifies and brings together the most relevant and compatible partners from both a technical and cultural perspective. This holistic approach is the key to building long-term, successful collaborations.
We support collaborations through grants
DSI’s grant programs are an important tool for facilitating collaborative research and commercial projects. These grants can open the unmarked door to new partnerships and opportunities that might otherwise stay closed. We can advise you about which grants may be suitable for you, and help you through the application process.
