Earth Observation Australia (EOA) and the Surveying & Spatial Sciences Institute (SSSI) have signed a Memorandum of Understanding.

The signed MoU will focus on sharing knowledge, responding to current and future industry challenges and trends, promoting and supporting the spatial profession at all levels of educational institution, according to the SSSI.

Dr Zaffar Sadiq Mohamed-Ghouse FSSSI FRGS, President, SSSI, said that this formalisation and strengthening of the two entities’ relationship will also support the use of geospatial information to achieve the United Nations 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and other global and national objectives.

“Earth Observation Australia is a valued friend of SSSI and this MoU strengthens our capacity to work co-operatively together,” he said.

“SSSI respects EOA’s ability to bring together research, government, education, private industry and non-government organisations to grow and nurture Earth observation activities and services. We are proud to be working with this innovative group.”

Professor Stuart Phinn, President, EOA, welcomed the signing of the new agreement.

“This MoU formalises and strengthens our existing relationship and gives both organisations greater capacity to support our members and the wider geospatial and Earth observation communities,” he said.
