We form partnerships in a variety of flexible ways, including through research partnerships, researcher placements, consultancy services and commercialisation of our IP. CSIRO Manufacturing and the MI Program seeks to engage customers that have strong interests and challenges in the metals and corrosion fields. The MI Program also seeks to collaborate with other institutions that have complementary skills and capabilities so that we can deliver impact and outcomes that benefit Australia.For more information on our work and how to engage with us, please contact the Corrosion Team – CSIRO Manufacturing:
