Kiri-ganai Research

Kiri-ganai Research fosters research and collaborations that look beyond the bounds of our perceived limitations.

In Japanese, “Kiri-ganai Research” literally means research without bounds. In today’s world, complex problems cannot be solved simply through traditional forms of science and technology.

We believe research that engages people, looks beyond linearity, recognises different forms of knowledge, draws upon personal experience, acknowledges culture, negotiates between interests, and invites creativity is vital in producing the right outcomes.

About Kiri-ganai


Our story

Kiri-ganai was founded in Australia in 2003, with a focus on environment, biodiversity, and risk management research. A couple of years later, we grew to include industry strategic assessment activities as part of our services.

Our activities in international research grew to include China, the US and Great Britain in 2009, and by 2012 we had established Kiri-ganai Marketing in China and Australia.

We received the Prime Minister’s Australian Banksia Environmental Award (Biodiversity category) in 2008, and we were finalists in the Australian Museum Eureka Prize for Interdisciplinary Research in 2011.

Our philosophy

At Kiri-ganai Research, we:

  • foster creativity, not incremental thinking;
  • lead the pack, are reliable, help achieve success, provide value for money and, well, simply feel right for the client;
  • are credible, ethical, innovative, and well networked;
  • are proud of ourselves, as a business of Australian origin at the forefront of intellectual, environmental and social responsibility, and with a global view uninhibited by institutional and cultural boundaries.
