Who we are
As Australia’s national science agency, we solve the country’s greatest challenges through innovative science and technology. We work with industry, government and the research community to address challenges including food security and quality; clean energy and resources; health and wellbeing; resilient and valuable environments; innovative industries; and a secure Australia and region.
With more than 5,000 experts and a burning desire to get things done, we are a catalyst for innovation.
We’ve advanced Australia with a range of inventions and innovations that have had significant positive impact on the lives of people around the world, like fast WiFi, polymer banknotes, the CSIRO Total Wellbeing Diet and Aerogard.
CSIRO’s research at the Waite Campus provides innovation for Australia’s agricultural, land, water and minerals sectors.
CSIRO’s agriculture research applies world class multidisciplinary science, technology and facilities, relevant IP and global networks across the value chain to create healthier, trusted, safer and more sustainable food and fibre for the future. Our research at the Waite Campus focuses on integrated agricultural systems, wine grapes and horticulture, genomic science for crop performance, and soil carbon and nutrient cycling.
Land and water
CSIRO’s land and water research provides the science to underpin Australia’s economic, social and environmental prosperity. Our research tackles the increasing pressure facing our natural and built environments from the combined effects of climate change, disasters such as bushfires and drought, and other disruptions. Our research at the Waite Campus focuses on environmental resilience, environmental toxicology, managing water ecosystems, water in the resources sector, economics, productivity and sustainability.
CSIRO’s mineral resources works closely with industry partners to unlock the value of Australia’s natural resource base and delivers a more productive, lower cost, socially and environmentally responsible global minerals industry. Our research at the Waite Campus focuses on intelligent mining enabled by sensors and ore management.
