The ATSE and our 800 distinguished Fellows are working toward one thing - a universal sustainable future. So we never limit ourselves to the intelligence of just our own country. Instead we work with experts right across the globe - scientists, engineers and technical experts in areas of academia, industry and of course, the government.
Our international colleagues offer significant contribution to missions, workshops and delegations. In fact, they act as Ambassadors - encouraging exchange programs for the research leaders of tomorrow.
But our connections aren’t limited to individuals. In fact, we have linkages to some of the world’s key research institutions, industries, government agencies and other S & T organisations with the scientific community. One of which is the acclaimed Australasian Industry Research Group.
We believe collaboration is the key to fast-tracking innovation on a global scale. We promote our activities abroad and seek out opportunities through both the Australian Science and Research Advisory and Australian diplomatic posts. And we constantly engage with Councils established by the Australian Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade.
Our connections are strategic. They lead to enhanced research outcomes and a sharper competitive edge, which in-turn helps our industry move forward even faster.
Thanks to specific federal government grants and schemes, the ATSE are able to link arms with overseas experts. From missions and workshops to delegations and exchanges, our global linkages strengthen Australia’s access to global science, engineering and technology.
ATSE's bilateral and multilateral connections involve regular analysis on country engagement, briefings and correspondence with the Australian State and Federal Governments.
The Academy promotes its activities abroad and seeks out opportunities through the Australian science and research advisory /counsellor positions based in diplomatic posts in Beijing, Brussels, New Delhi and Washington, and through the establishment of relationships and its program of briefings with foreign diplomatic missions in Australia.
This is reinforced through the Academy's engagement with the Councils established by the Australian Government Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT) to foster understanding and to support 'people to people' relations. This approach, which focuses on Asian, European and Latin American relations, provides valuable strategic and financial support to the Academy through its grant scheme.
International understanding is also fostered through the work of the Crawford Fund which was established by ATSE in 1987 as a non-profit, non-government organisation to raise awareness of the benefits to developing countries and to Australia of international agricultural research. Its focus on training, grants to researchers in developing countries, and the sharing and exchange of information through publications and conferences.

Over time, international relationships have been made with like-minded organisations. Some of which include scientific and research bodies, Government ministries and sister academies.
It’s these relationships that have fostered a collaborative and highly beneficial approach to information exchange, allowing us to tap into a wealth of knowledge and know-how through:
CAETS (the International Council of Academies of Engineering and Technological Sciences) was founded on a single insight - many nations are dependent on technology for their economic and social welfare.
Such an insight requires an impressive team, which is why CAETS is made up of 26 engineering and applied science academies from Europe, the Americas and the Asia-Pacific region, of which ATSE is an active and foundation member.
Worldwide, CAETS has proven to be an effective forum for any technology-related issues of global significance.
