Meeting Aims

Welcome to what will be our first Earth Observation Australia whole of community meeting since commencing the implementation of the Australian Earth Observation Community Plan 2026!  

There has also been several recent announcements on very large scale national funding and program commitments to building Australia’s EO capacity across government, industry and research.  EOA has played a major role in enabling these to happen, and as you will learn in this webinar, this is only the beginning!

Please join the community for our next meeting on 14 June and learn how you can participate and benefit from these activities.
