From the Archives

In 2022, Jigsaw Media came to The ISS Institute offices and collected 15 boxes sitting in storage. Over the past five months, they have been meticulously scanning reports and photographs to recover information that has never been digitised. The aim to full recover all reports and create a repository of knowledge that will continue to keep rare trades alive, and continue to address the skills gap in Australia.

Below is a selection of restored Fellowship reports that chart the earliest of research conducted by ISS Institute Fellows.
