Growing Australian innovation through collaboration
International collaboration and partnerships are fundamental to building science and research capability. Australia has a strong track record collaborating with international partners to strengthen our national and global science and research systems.
Global Science and Technology Diplomacy Fund
The Australian Government’s Global Science and Technology Diplomacy Fund (GSTDF) identifies and finances science and technology initiatives to grow Australia’s capability.
The funds’ strategic element provides flexible funding for collaborative projects aligned with Australia’s priority research areas. The Prime Minister and minister determine priorities annually.
The Australian Academy of Technology, Science and Engineering (ATSE) administers the funds’ strategic element in partnership with the Australian Academy of Science.
