In many of our research activities, DST Group works closely with universities to deliver technology-based solutions to Defence.
University collaboration is core to our strategy to build on our strength of being a valued advisor to government and to focus our efforts towards future Defence and national security capability.
We leverage world-class capabilities both in Australia and internationally, through strategic alliances and partnerships. Partnerships enable us to take a stronger role in integrating knowledge and best practices to deliver innovative outcomes.
Defence Science Partnerships framework
To strengthen our university collaboration across Australia, we have established a Defence Science Partnerships (DSP) framework.
This is a new and innovative collaboration framework that provides Australian universities a simple and consistent way to partner with us.
The DSP is ground-breaking in Australia, providing a coordinated and targeted approach for university collaboration in strategically identified key technology areas.
Thirty-two universities have so far signed up to the DSP agreement.
DST also has existing/legacy agreements in niche areas with a number of Australian universities, including those below.
