Centre for Urban Transitions

About us


The Centre for Urban Transitions undertakes research that shapes the equitable and sustainable cities of the future. Our work is partnership-based, future-oriented, and has been successfully implemented into policy and projects.

We address three broad themes to our work:

  • regenerating our cities
  • equitable housing opportunities
  • 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.
