Professional Workshop Co-Convened by ANU College of Asia and the Pacific, ANU College of Science and the Department of Industry, Innovation and Science

This one-day professional workshop explores the challenges of setting priorities in an Australian context of limited resources with a comparative approach to large-infrastructure projects in Europe and North America. Through interactive engagement with the case study, participants will gain an improved understanding of the strategic response to priority setting with a focus on smaller satellites. Workshop participants will also engage with understanding the distinctive global leadership of Mount Stromlo in managing ‘space debris’.

Upon successful completion of the interactive case study, participants will have a clearer understanding of the ways in which the government can support R&D and technology capabilities appropriate to the context.
