Centre for Appropriate Technology

The Centre for Appropriate Technology (CfAt) has grown from humble beginnings 40 years ago to become a world-class research and innovation hub.

CfAt and its commercial arm, Ekistica, have hit the headlines recently by hosting a range of space-related infrastructure, including two ViaSat Remote Earth Observation ground stations and ArianeGroup’s GEOTracker satellite station, partnerships that strengthen the Northern Territory’s role in the trillion-dollar global space industry. But their core work is developing ways to ensure remote and regional communities across Australia and Asia-Pacific, particularly remote Aboriginal communities, are able to access reliable power, water supply, digital connectivity, built infrastructure, training and skills development.

Lyndon Frearson from Centre for Appropriate Technology will present at October Business Month in Alice Springs.

Date: Wednesday 14 October
Time: 9:45am to 10:15am
Venue: DoubleTree by Hilton Alice Springs, 82 Barrett Drive, Alice Springs.
