The purpose of this website is to provide in-project support and resources for current Industry PhD supervisors and students, including guides and the iPhD Training Calendar.


The CSIRO Industry PhD Program (iPhD) program began as a pilot in 2018 to being funded under the Australian Government’s University Research Commercialisation Action Plan from 2023 onwards.

Through the program, students undertake PhD research on a problem developed in collaboration with and jointly supervised by a CSIRO researcher, an industry partner, and a university researcher.

The program offers students a fully funded government scholarship, an industry-funded top-up, funds for project operating costs and professional development training.
