Translating research from concept to commercial product requires attracting the best international talent, which in turn fosters a dynamic and internationally engaged science and technology sector.
The COVID-19 pandemic has demonstrated the power and potential of the international STEM community, and the importance of resilience in Australia’s infrastructure and workforce.
For Australia to be ready to meet the challenges of the coming decades, we need to strengthen connections to global academic leaders and industry experts, and we can do this by inviting champions of STEM to forge their career paths at our world-class research institutions.
Collaboration and diversity are central to the Australian Academy of Technology and Engineering’s values, and we encourage growth of the local STEM ecosystem through international engagement.
At CSIRO – Australia’s national science agency – our innovation strategy is built on our diversity. We are one of the world’s largest multidisciplinary science and technology organisations, and our research covers the full breadth of the air we breathe, the land we grow, the water we drink, the food we eat, and the life we live.
Our more than 5,000 people across 50 sites have access to world-class national infrastructure – from supercomputers and telescopes to our Australian Centre for Disease Preparedness and Investigator Research Vessel – all responding to urgent challenges like pandemics, climate change, and industry transformation.
They collaborate generously with partners across industry, government and the broader research sector, both here and around the world, to help bridge the gap between lab bench and business and turn science into solutions that make life better for all Australians.
We have built an inclusive culture to drive our innovation, and we welcome people with diverse experience and backgrounds to help us solve the greatest challenges.
Australia is undoubtedly a great place to live, and it’s also a great place to start and scale a company.
Australia is a fantastic place for science and all STEM activities. To anyone considering relocating in Australia, I would say that this is a wonderful opportunity!
The Australian Government helps us and other companies to bring in awesome people through initiatives like the Global Talent visa program. This is critical for Aussie companies to compete on the international stage and to build a critical mass of skilled people in our country.
Australia has been a good sandbox for many businesses that are trying to expand internationally. Since we started in 2015, the fintech community here has grown a lot and the resources the government provides are useful.
In terms of culture, Australia is very diverse and geographically it is in the same time zone as Asia, which was one of the first markets we expanded into.
And to create those ideas, we need people with skills and knowledge and life experience – people who are smart, forward thinking and ready to respond to the challenges ahead.
We are now seeking to double down on our expanding workforce . Join us in growing, diversifying and invigorating the Australian tech landscape!
Australia is a fantastic place to live and has a blossoming tech community. So we can attract the best people from around the world – the people who will bring our life-changing technology to more people in more places.
Recovering critical and valuable materials from waste must play a role in helping to electrify the world as we move towards renewable energies, reducing our carbon footprint and being truly more sustainable.
