Invest Victoria has entered into a strategic partnership with the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO), Australia’s national science agency.

The partnership will help global investors enhance their competitiveness through targeted research and development, innovation and commercialisation.

Under the Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) signed between Invest Victoria and CSIRO, the two organisations will work closely to identify and attract new and strategic foreign direct investment.

The MOU will seek to leverage Invest Victoria’s access to global markets and align with CSIRO’s expertise in science and technology at its Victorian sites in Clayton, Aspendale, Parkville, Werribee and Geelong.

Science and technology will have a key role to play in Victoria and Australia’s recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic and build future resilience.

Invest Victoria and CSIRO are strongly committed to pursuing opportunities under the partnership that can assist the economic recovery phase and further enhance the resilience of key industry sectors.
