C4 Space was provided a grant by the Department of Innovation and Skills (now Department of Education) to conduct a study focused on understanding the skills needs and demand from the space industry. C4 Space led the project, working with Asia Pacific Aerospace Consultants, and supported by input from South Australian Space Industry Centre (SASIC) and TAFE SA.

The completed report provides the most detailed view of space workforce skills needs yet assembled in Australia and forms an essential part of the evidence base required by education institutions to develop training programmes that address the growing demand for space skills.
