ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the Information and Communications Technologies (ICT) Centre launched by Australia's Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organization (CSIRO) on September 1, 2003. ICT Centre will aim to establish a strong position for CSIRO in ICT research by making sound choices today on where to put research effort to ensure that local ICT innovation drives social and economic benefit for Australia and the world. To deliver on these aims the ICT Centre has been developing and refining its research agenda, with a view to establishing a relatively small number of research themes which will focus on delivering solutions into priority industries such as e-health. One of the reasons CSIRO has created a centre for research in ICT and not a new division is to emphasis the partnering role of the new entity. The ICT Round Table comprises senior management from each of these organizations and meets several times a year to plan and progress strategies for research collaboration. In May 2004 the centre won two Australian Information Industry Association iAwards for the Virtual Critical Care Unit and for its world-leading search engine, Panoptic. An early partnering success for the Centre is the establishment of the e-Health Research Centre, a $15 million joint venture with the Queensland government.
