Research Institutes in Australia

Many higher education institutions and independent research institutes in Australia are researching many topics across many disciplines. Notably, the country has countless medical research institutes and organizations – many of which are represented by the Association of Australian Medical Research Institutes. The Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organization (CSIRO) is Australian’s national science agency. CSIRO engages in flagship programs where large-scale, long-term scientific projects develop a major scientific or industrial concern. The Energy Transformed Flagship, for example, aims to lower greenhouse gas emissions by providing sustainable, efficient, cost effective energy solutions for electricity supply and transport. Research Australia is a national non-profit alliance of organizations and companies developing health and wellness research issues, such as improvements in diabetes research and heart disease. The Australian Research Council (ARC), the lead public body in research, supports applied research and research training in all sectors private, governmental and educational through grants and promotional initiatives.
