Madderns will be looking forward to continuing its long association with the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO), after being appointed to the panel of preferred providers of intellectual property (IP) services.

CSIRO was founded in 1916 as the Advisory Council of Science and Industry. Since then, it has undergone several iterations to become the federally-funded CSIRO. The highly-respected organisation has advanced Australia with a range of inventions and innovations that have also had a significant positive impact on the lives of people worldwide. Some of their inventions include household products and technologies that have become an intrinsic part of our daily lives, such as plastic banknotes and WiFi – yes, we can thank CSIRO for it – and even Aerogard® and Softly®.

CSIRO’s research interests are very broad and Madderns’ appointment to the panel of preferred IP service providers requires the firm to provide services in areas including biological sciences such as biotechnology, genomics and vaccines; chemistry and chemical engineering; electronics and ICT; mechanical engineering; physics; and trade marks.

The appointment recognises that the Madderns team has the technical knowledge, expertise and experience to work with the nation’s top scientists and researchers to protect their IP.
