Significant opportunity on horizon
Are you looking for new funding opportunities? Do you want to build new relationships with leading remote sensing companies from Australia and the European Union? That's good. Because we are hosting the European Remote Sensing Industry Mission to Australia, where you can do both!
WHAT AND WHEN:
From 5 - 9 March 2018, the CRCSI and the European Association of Remote Sensing Companies (EARSC), are hosting events in Brisbane, Canberra and Sydney. The week has been organised to bring Earth Observation specialists from the European Union and Australia together with the aim of teaming them up to bid for Horizon2020 funding.
GET IN QUICK:
Places are strictly limited to 30 in each state, so please RSVP ASAP (links below), for your opportunity to:
· Showcase your capability and technology
· Participate in meetings with leading companies, universities and government agencies
· Discover more about Copernicus and Horizon2020 EU-AU partnership opportunities
· Expand professional networks with on-ground support from EARSC and CRCSI
Attendees will participate in networking events, briefings and introductions to remote sensing companies, investors and customers. There is over €6 million in Horizon2020 funding available for Australian-European collaborations, and we hope this week provides the impetus for our two regions to build partnerships and successful bids.
BRISBANE -- EU & Australian industry showcase + facilitated networking
CANBERRA -- Collaborating to grow the space economy + facilitated networking
SYDNEY -- Australian application sectors panel + facilitated networking
The trade mission coincides with a visit from the European Commissioner for Internal Market, Industry, Entrepreneurship and SMEs, Elzbieta Bienkowska. Commissioner Bienkowska will spend her time down under focussing on the space industry and digital economy. Hear from her at the Canberra event.
In addition to the immediate Horizon2020 funding opportunities, there will also be time to discuss the Australia-EC Copernicus data exchange, the Copernicus services (e.g. emergency management) and how EU and Australian companies can collaborate.
This trade mission is being organised by the CRCSI and the EARSC, in partnership with Geoscience Australia, CSIRO, SIBA|GITA and Earth Observation Australia.
