Presented by Commonwealth and State Government EO Program Directors and Staff, CSIRO EO Program Directors, CRC Si, University researchers, Private Industry and Non-government groups.


As usual there is a lot going on with EO in Australia at present across government, industry and research. This webinar will focus on several major national initiatives that will have significant impacts on the longevity and funding provided for us to grow government and industry EO in Australia over the next 10-20 years. Timing of national inputs to these processes is limited, so it is essential we provide a community level response as effectively as possible!

Lots to discuss as well in terms of our first highly successful technical webinar (see Accessing AusCover Data Webinar) and where to next with that, as well as upcoming CEOS and industry events!

Our main updates will be on:

  • Australian Earth Observation Community Plan,
  • Essential whole of community inputs required for the “The National Research Infrastructure Capability Issues Paper” and the “2026 Spatial Industry Growth Agenda”,
  • Australian Earth Observation Symposium,
  • Australian Government Earth Observation from Space Working Group (Geoscience Australia, Bureau of Meteorology, Geoscience Australia),
  • CEOS Australian activities for 2016,
  • International and national EO progress,
  • Developing Government-Research Industry Partnerships to reduce risk.

We will also have updates prior to and during the meeting on other key activities across public, private and research sectors, including - engagement activities at national and International levels, conferences and support groups, and key capabilities.

As usual, information on the major topics to be covered will be provided prior to the meeting and we will have the opportunity to comment on and discuss how to take these items forward during the meeting.

If you do have any critical items you would like emailed to the national list (> 300 people) or presented at the meeting – please let us know ASAP!
