Whole of Community Meeting

Hosted by Professor Stuart Phinn (University of Queensland)


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....
