Implementation of the Plan will occur through the following five main stages:

  1. Engaging widely across the EO community.

  2. Linking the EOA to a suitable agency or programm able to work across Government and Industry.

  3. Establishing working groups to progress priority areas of this Plan.

  4. Build the case for and obtain government and external investment for developing and implementing the Plan.

  5. Promoting the Plan, its priority areas, and key actions.

The EOA community will be advised on when these activities will take place and how to participate through this site and our distribution list.
