The AISRF’s key work

Collaborative research projects

The AISRF links Australian and Indian research institutions together to work on strategically focused, leading-edge scientific research and technology projects.

The projects build research capacity and maximise the application, commercialisation and sustainability of research outcomes. Supporting the continued economic growth and development of both nations.

Targeted workshops

The workshops bring together leading researchers from Australia and India to focus on key issues of mutual interest or contemporary challenges facing both nations.

They aim to:

  • create, promote and strengthen relationships between our nation’s researchers and research institutions
  • promote scientific and technological cooperation between Australia and India
  • find more areas to collaborate where there's significant potential to mutually benefit from outcomes

Early and mid-career researcher fellowships

High-performing Australian early and mid-career researchers can access funding to travel to India and work with leading researchers at major Indian science and technology organisations. This work helps to facilitate future long-term science, technology and innovation collaboration between our nations.
