We welcome the opportunity to collaborate and form new partnerships.

The Smart Cities Research Institute works with a partner organisation on all research projects and initiatives.

We are seeking to develop collaborations and formal partnerships with companies interested in working with the institute on advanced technological and sociological innovation in the smart cities sector, in particular:

  • state and local government
  • planners
  • engineers
  • architects
  • urban developers
  • accountants
  • financiers

Please contact us if you have a problem or issue that you would like our researchers to help you unravel and address using the smart city approach to visualising and simulating alternative scenarios and responses.

Seed grants

The institute is involved in a university-wide seed grant scheme which provides funding for interdisciplinary projects that are aligned with external partnership and collaboration objectives. 

The scheme aims to support projects that address complex, societal and industry challenges and is a great way for our partners to engage in research with us.

Contact the Smart Cities Research Institute

There are many ways to engage with us. If your organisation is dealing with a complex problem, then get in touch to discuss how we can work together to provide solutions.
