ANSTO seeks collaboration and partnerships with research organisations and commercial users. We aim to respond promptly to requests as per our research and service Charter.

 

ANSTO makes its nuclear science and technology facilities available to the research community and industry through peer-reviewed, collaborative and commercial arrangements. Individuals within the organisation assist researchers and industry users by identifying nuclear-based techniques that best meet their research needs.

 

Assistance can also be provided with  experiment design, sample preparation, use of the facilities and the analysis of data. ANSTO researchers can also provide comprehensive analytical and reactor-based services to clients.
