Alex Cooke


I am Director of Strategic Delivery within Australia’s National Science Agency, CSIRO, where I lead a range of industry collaboration and innovation programs, including overseeing the CSIRO Missions Program. Prior to working at CSIRO, I served as Australia’s Industry, Innovation and Science Counsellor in Brussels. I was Australia’s representative on the OECD’s science, technology and innovation-related committees, represented Australia on technology and digital issues at the G7 and G20 and managed the bilateral science and innovation relationship with the EU. Prior to that I led a range of science, research and innovation initiatives across Australian Government departments and agencies.
