In 2021, a coalition of leading Australian space and spatial organisations are co-convening a series of dialogues for space, surveying and spatial professionals to develop the Space+Spatial Industry Growth Roadmap 2030 which facilitates accelerated mutual growth of these industries looking out to 2030. Now, feedback is being sought on a range of issues that will lead to a SPACE+SPATIAL Industry Growth Roadmap 2030.

This is your invitation to join in the dialogue.

A lot of the hard work has been done. A Space+Spatial Industry Growth Roadmap 2030 Consultation Paper is out for comment. The purpose of the consultation paper is to seek feedback on actions that can be taken over the coming decade to accelerate the shared growth of the space and spatial industries. 

Check out the SPACE+SPATIAL Industry Growth Roadmap 2030  for all the information you need about the Roadmap. And remember your feedback is still welcome and we invite you to participate in the online survey to share your thoughts and opinions. Click here to complete the online survey.
