Campuses

The national science and innovation campuses act as important national focal points for science-based collaboration and knowledge exchange with industry and academia. Our partners aim to deliver strong engagement and build a thriving and interactive community of world-leading scientists, technologists and innovators. The campuses enable access to cutting-edge facilities and core scientific and technological strengths and provide an avenue to develop new capabilities and ways of working.
