The GRAVITY Challenge is an international technology innovation program that brings together Challenge providers (corporates, government agencies and other businesses) and Innovators (entrepreneurs, RTO’s, universities, start-ups and SMEs) to collaborate and create solutions to some of business and society’s biggest challenge using space data and space capability.

GRAVITY Challenge 02 is an opportunity for bilateral engagement between Australian and the UK Innovators and Challenge providers to gain visibility and access to international end users, customers and collaborators.

  • Phase 3 – Pilot (Ongoing support and mentoring to commercialise solutions)
