The Program
AMSI Intern is an innovative national program working across industry, building links between universities and businesses.

AMSI Intern is delighted to partner with the CRC for Spatial Information (CRCSI) for a Victorian trial of the internship program. This partnership will give access to high end quantitative and analytical expertise from within Australia’s leading universities to benefit the CRCSI partners and the spatial information sector. Following the successful completion of the Victorian trial, the AMSI intern – CRCSI partnership will be expanded nationally.

The partnership provides financial support to businesses servicing the spatial information sector as a cost effective solution for a research challenge or problem facing your business.

Postgraduate students, along with university supervisors, come from all disciples to partner with industry through short-term (4-5 month) tightly focused research internships.
