For Government

DSI is the gateway to Australia’s dynamic defence capability eco-system. We work closely with local industry, universities, defence primes and local government to champion defence research networks and assemble multi-disciplinary teams, which will drive Australia’s national security interests forward.

As the single entry point of access to capability, we offer comprehensive insights, guidance, and support for domestic and international government representations seeking defence related research capability.

Discovery Sessions

DSI’s bespoke discovery sessions help government representatives quickly identify, evaluate and compare capabilities and facilities across local universities. Based on your brief, we will assemble representatives from the leading institutions suited to your interests across Australia. We then organise presentations, introductions and tours. With such a dynamic local environment, DSI can provide important insights about emerging capabilities, performance track records and recent developments.

Networking Opportunities

We run a number of events that bring together people of diverse backgrounds with mutual objectives. Take advantage of opportunities to expand your network across industry, academia and Defence.

Our flagship networking event is an Innovation PitchFest, which runs at the major Defence and national Security expos.
