Empowering scientists to reach for the edge of the possible

ARIA is an R&D funding agency built to unlock scientific and technological breakthroughs that benefit everyone.

Many of society’s most important advances have stemmed from those with the foresight to pursue new capabilities that most believed to be unattainable.

ARIA empowers scientists and engineers with the resources and freedom to pursue those breakthroughs.

Many will fail to meet their target, but their efforts will inspire the next generation. Those that do succeed will generate massive social and economic returns.
