Growing Partnerships

Our grant programs and science commercialisation initiatives are identifying and supporting opportunities for businesses, researchers and government agencies to collaborate; whether on projects in Vietnam, bilaterally with Australia, or by accessing global knowledge networks, supply chains and markets.


Acting with Purpose

Innovation is change with purpose – it makes a positive contribution to human security, prosperity or wellbeing. Our activities build on the work of IDIA, DFAT’s InnovationXChange, and CSIRO’s Agriculture and Global Change, to deliver positive impact.
