About Event

Come along to a special Space x Health Tech Connect event as we explore the intersections of the space and health tech industries.  

The fusion of space and health industries has unlocked the potential to improve and find solutions to global health issues. With satellites monitoring air quality, remote medical diagnosis, and 3D printing generating medical devices for space, the possibilities to transform our future are endless.

Join us for an evening with the Australian space and health tech communities - to unpack how space innovations solve urgent health issues and discover how local entrepreneurs grow their businesses by playing across both industries.

Dr Katja Beitat, Cicada's Head of Health tech, and Julie Autuly, Head of Space Tech, will be in conversation with: 

We are bringing together founders, experts and key stakeholders across the space, defence and health sectors to collaborate, connect, and share knowledge and opportunities.
