As of January 2020, the Undergraduate Research Opportunities Program (UROP) has transitioned from Biomedical Research Victoria to Australia’s national science agency, CSIRO.

CSIRO’s Education and Outreach team has a long track record of inspiring primary and secondary school students to take up STEM careers. Through UROP, CSIRO will expand its engagement activities with Victorian undergraduate students to strengthen the pipeline of STEM skilled Australians.

CSIRO Education and Outreach will trial UROP in 2020. Find out more on the CSIRO website or contact
