With development underway in Australia to build a reputable and respected space agency, and $41 million allocated to the sector over a four-year period, executive director of international and national engagement at the Australian Space Agency Karl Rodrigues joins host Phil Tarrant to unpack where that will be invested and their plans to triple the Australian space economy in the next 10 years. With the agency still in its infancy, Rodrigues will discuss how he came to take on the role of international and national engagement executive director and how the work that he is involved in will provide a lift to the Australian economy. He will share why the burgeoning space sector will also result in growth in various other sectors and the types of jobs that their growth will create. Rodrigues will also discuss Australia’s role in the global space economy, the unique benefits that the nation is able to bring and what will influence the path of the agency’s development.
