CSI Swinburne was established in 2014 to contribute to Swinburne University of Technology’s mission to create social and economic impact through science, technology, and innovation. We form part of the national CSI network; a partnership between the University of New South Wales, Swinburne University of Technology, and the University of Western Australia. 

We integrate research, learning and engagement to produce high-quality outputs that are dynamic, accessible and useful. Our research is located at the intersection between social and organisational sciences, and focuses on four key themes: 

  • social and community innovation 
  • enterprise for social goals 
  • measuring and communicating social impacts 
  • social investment and philanthropy

Industry collaborations

We have produced ground-breaking research in collaboration with not-for-profit, philanthropic, public sector, corporate and social enterprise actors, which has made demonstrable impacts on public policy and organisational practice. 

Our work in social enterprise, digital inclusion, regional development and community services innovation is typically conducted in partnership with the organisations, communities and sectors we seek to serve.
