We're creating Australia's data-driven future

CSIRO’s Data61 is Australia’s leading data innovation group which was officially formed in 2016 from the integration of CSIRO’s Digital Productivity flagship and the National ICT Australia Ltd (NICTA). Our mission is to create Australia’s data-driven future. We believe Australia can lead the world in change and not just respond to it.

To create a better world for the future generations, we’re bringing together the innovation ecosystem and building a global applied R&D network of partners in government, industry and academia called the D61+ Network.

Through the D61+Network we will align our collective capabilities with Australia’s national interests and help Australia create new technology-based industries that can reach global scale.

How can we work with you?

Data science, engineering and design are at the core of what we do. As your applied R&D partner, we offer advisory services, deep research to inform decision making, proof of concepts, product and platform development and breakthrough technologies that can transform existing industries and seed new ones.

With more than 1,100 staff, including 415+ resident PhD students, we’re Australia’s leading digital research powerhouse.

Being part of CSIRO, Australia’s innovation catalyst, means we offer deep domain expertise across a wide range of industries. We’re just as much at home working in safety and security, smart cities, personalised health and wellness, food provenance, industrial internet (machine learning, big data, IoT), regtech, fintech and data-driven government as we are developing planning, decision making and social media tools, visualisation techniques and collaboration platforms.
