Hosted by Professor Stuart Phinn

At the time of writing this Australia now has at least one policy for a “Science and Industry Agency & Space Industry Program”  from one our political parties. In its justification and associated media support, it is entirely EO based, then as usual, this is nowhere to be seen as a building block or focus in the policy. This meeting will review the status of Australia’s nascent Space Capability Industry policies,  providing a critical assessment and indication of why EO is the justification for this policy, but is not built by it.  We will then highlight potential paths for moving our community’s agenda and activities forward in this context to that EO is a pillar or building and delivering the capability of Australia’s future Space Industry.
