Boosting innovation

Innovation incubator

Lindfield Collaboration Hub is an innovation incubator. A dedicated space for start-ups and SME’s to develop unique, high-tech products and devices. Early stage and established companies can move to CSIRO’s Lindfield campus and access our facilities, science know-how, experience, business networks and commercialisation savvy.

We’re giving business access to some of the brightest minds and best facilities in Australia, while helping CSIRO continue the role it’s been playing for a hundred years – giving Australian industry a global edge by fostering cutting edge technologies and companies.
