About SIMS

Founded in 2005 and located on Chowder Bay in Sydney Harbour, the Sydney Institute of Marine Science (SIMS) is a world-leading marine science institute with broad expertise in areas such as water quality and restoration of urban waterways.

SIMS is a partnership between Macquarie University, the University of NSW, the University of Sydney and the University of Technology, Sydney. The partnership is enhanced by collaborations with several state and federal government departments, and the Australian Museum. SIMS has over 100 scientists and graduate students associated with the Institute, representing a broad diversity of skills. SIMS is able to access experts across our four university partners and associate members, and has experience creating diverse teams to create a range of solutions.

SIMS was formed to create a ‘borderless’ hub for innovation that would use the full breadth and depth of talent among our member universities to undertake transformational research. Our philosophy is to challenge the status quo and create a non-competitive model for collaboration.
