WHO WE ARE
THE GATEWAY TO
The Defence Science Institute (DSI) was established in 2010 within the University of Melbourne. It is funded jointly by the State Government of Victoria, the Commonwealth Government’s Defence Science and Technology (DST) Group and our university members.
DSI is staffed by a team of senior multi-disciplinary professionals from industry, government and academic backgrounds. We have the insight and experience to bridge different priorities and points of view towards common goals and successes.
Our mandate is to coordinate the greatest public good outcomes by bringing together the right collaborators within the dynamic and ever-evolving Australian defence market. Our team achieves this through building trusting relationships and demonstrating understanding, insight and empathy.
