Event description
A New Frontier for the Space Industry and Scientific Research: U.S.-Australia Space Cooperation Forum

About this Event

On September 21, 2019, the Australian Space Agency and NASA signed a joint Statement of Intent on expanding cooperation between the two countries in the growing space market. As part of the collaboration, Australia announced a $150 million investment to support NASA’s 2024 mission to the Moon and onto Mars. This partnership will allow new opportunities for Australian businesses and researchers to support NASA initiatives and other international space industry efforts.

Join the CompTIA Space Enterprise Council and Austrade for a U.S.-Australia Space Cooperation Forum to celebrate the increased collaboration between the Australian Space Agency and NASA. Attendees will hear from space policy experts from both countries and will have the opportunity to network with industry, policy, and research leaders to establish connections in the space industry and scientific research. Breakfast will be served.

Featured speakers include:

  • Hon. Karen Andrews MP, Australian Minister for Industry, Science and Technology
  • David Logsdon, Senior Director, Public Sector, CompTIA
  • Pam Melroy, Colonel, USAF (retired) and former NASA Space Shuttle Commander
  • Kevin O'Connell, Director, Office of Space Commerce, U.S. Department of Commerce
