Cultural Artefact CSIROpedia (2006 - )
CSIROpedia was a project initiated by Dr Colin Ward in his retirement to document the significant alumni and achievements of the CSIRO (formerly CSIR). He had joined the CSIRO Division of Protein Chemistry in 1979 , undertaking a range of roles until he retired in 2006. The CSIROpedia website was launched in 2011 containing information the key achievements of the organisation including derived products, processes, systems and companies; major research collections and facilities; and detailed information about individual key achievers. The site also includes information about published divisional histories. The project was closely aligned with the CSIRO Alumni program from the outset.
