Comprising leaders from astrophysics, government, business and strategic partners in Australia and throughout the region, the CASAC contributes to the work of Swinburne and its partners by offering the DVC (Research & Development) and the Director of CAS its advice, expertise and experience relating to research translation and external engagement. This includes matters relating to specific sectors, trends such as globalisation and technology, policy, research agenda, skills and training, and market intelligence.

Members of the CASAC seek to facilitate the achievement of Swinburne’s strategic research objectives by leveraging their professional networks, profile, reputation, experience and influence. The Swinburne Research & Innovation Ecosystem, in particular the Research Institutes, Capability Platforms and the Centre for Astrophysics and Supercomputing are the key focus of this Committee.
