Event description


With NASA reinvigorated, and interested for Australia to play an important role in the journey to Mars, we invite you to join us for a day to discuss your research, products and services, and general ideas about property/real estate and outer space.

You may be in satellite development, space travel, asteroid mining, environmental space protection, debris removal, and other areas of cosmic space. Important for you will be the property/real estate considerations: asset, property and facility management, insurance concerns, property valuation, leasing, licencing of things for space navigation, tracking and travel, intellectual property, environmental and heritage matters.

This mini-conference provides opportunity to share ideas and to network in an old area of concern, and how it relates to outer space. This is a growing property portfolio in its own right, and the school of Property, Construction and Project Management, RMIT University, invites you to submit an abstract, to showcase your research, industry experiences or even just to share your ideas and to network.

This event is sponsored by:
The Space Industry Association of Australia
RMIT School of Property, Construction and Project Management
Sir Lawrence Wackett Centre
YK Law

UPDATE This event will be hosted online via a web conferencing service. Please continue to register and send in your abstract if you are interested in participating. All registered participants will be given instructions for joining us online prior to the event.
