Meeting Aims

Welcome to our EOA whole of community meeting!  

There is a lot going on across industry, government, defence, and research in Australia and internationally in Earth Observation. Our Space Agency has also started formally and is moving in a range of directions.

We have several working groups addressing the 10 year plan for EO, and we will hear from them along with key industry, national and international updates during this webinar. We will also be announcing a new innovative national conference for EO to commence in September 2020!

Please join the community for our next meeting on 2 August and learn how you can participate and benefit from these activities.
