The French-Australian Chamber of Commerce (FACCI) is hosting its first Aerospace, Defence & Aviation industry event of the year dedicated to the future of Australia’s Space Program on Wednesday 6 February.

With the space industry worth US$345 billion each year – but only 0.8% contributed by the Australian space sector – and new entrants in advanced technology disrupting the space industry, there are significant opportunities to build the sector in Australia. To capitalise on this growth opportunity, the Australian Space Agency, created in July 2018, aims to work with local businesses to help them win a greater share of the global space market, but what’s the plan?

To answer this question, Karl Rodrigues, Deputy Director for the CSIRO Energy Business Unit and Executive Director – International and National Engagement at Australian Space Agency will be joined for a panel discussion by IALPG’s own Duncan Blake, Special Counsel – Space Law, Adam Gilmour, CEO and Founder of Gilmour Space Technologies, and Ben Starkey, Co-Founder of Ozius, a startup specialised in space data imagery.

This will be a great opportunity to discuss the future opportunities but also the challenges the industry is facing.

Presentation and panel session will be followed by drinks and canapes.
