ICT research and development organisations

Research and development (R&D) is a valuable tool for growing and improving your business. It's important to find the right match for your business's R&D needs.

Contact and collaborate with the following ICT R&D organisations to support your R&D initiatives and build relationships.

  • Australian Centre of Excellence for Quantum Computation and Communication Technology (CQC2T)
    CQC2T is an international research effort to develop the science and technology of a global quantum computing information network, encompassing ultra-fast quantum computation, absolutely secure quantum communication and distributed quantum information processing. CQC2T researchers can advise on the technical specifications and uptake of current quantum secure communication networks and ongoing research to improve those networks. They can also advise on the state-of-the-art of quantum computation and the prospects for near-term and long-term applications.
  • Australian e-Health Research Centre (AEHRC)
    AEHRC is the leading national research facility applying information and communication technology to improve health services and clinical treatment for Australians.
    • CSIRO ICT Centre
      The ICT Centre delivers its R&D solutions through capability-based research laboratories. From smartphone apps and robotics, to wearable technology and next gen wireless, CSIRO is providing innovative information technology solutions that are helping to secure Australia's digital future.
  • Data61
    Data61 has been formed from a partnership between CSIRO and National ICT Australia (NICTA).
