About

The Encyclopedia of Australian Science is a register of the people and the many industries, corporations, research institutions, scientific societies and other organisations that have contributed to Australia's scientific, technological and medical heritage, with references to their archival materials and a bibliography of their historical published literature.

Explore the role these people and organisations have played in transforming science into processes, objects, buildings, and products that influence our lives and contribute to the development of our nation. Find out where they worked, who they worked with, what they worked on and what they achieved.

Many people have contributed to the success of the Encyclopedia of Australian Science, through its predecessors Bright Sparcs and Australian Science at Work. Information about these people can be found on our acknowledgement page. The story of its development can be found on our background page. If you have information you would like to contribute to the Encyclopedia of Australian Science, please contact us.
