‘Think globally, act locally’ Scottish thinker Patrick Geedes suggested in the 1800s. And now we think extra-globally. The Australian government is offering grants for businesses to be part of ‘The Australian Moon to Mars’ Initiative. Businesses can join NASA’s plans to go to the Moon and then on to Mars. The Australian Moon to Mars Supply Chain Capability Improvement Grants offer ‘businesses with domestic or international supply chain opportunities’ grants ‘to build their capacity, skills and capabilities’. Get your applications in by May 2023.
