Centre for Urban Transitions

About us

The Centre for Urban Transitions is undertaking research that will shape the cities of the future. Urban spaces need transitions to become sustainable, liveable, equitable, healthy and productive. Our research has a track record of being partnership-based, future-oriented, and with successful implementation into policy and projects.

We address three broad themes to our work:

  • reconstructing our cities
  • equitable and affordable housing
  • new ways of urban living.

This work builds on the strong history of urban research at Swinburne University and occurs within the context of the Swinburne Institutes. In particular, the CUT supports the Swinburne Smart Cities Research Institute, as well as the Swinburne Institute for Social Innovation and the Iverson Health Innovation Research Institute.
