Centre for Urban Transitions

About us

Our centre undertakes research that shapes the equitable and sustainable cities of the future. We are partnership-based and future-oriented, which allows our research to be successfully implemented into policy and projects.

We address three broad themes in our work:

  • regenerating our cities
  • housing transitions
  • new ways of urban living.

This work builds on the strong history of urban research at Swinburne and occurs within the context of Swinburne's research institutes. In particular, we support the Swinburne Smart Cities Research Institute, as well as the Swinburne Institute for Social Innovation and the Iverson Health Innovation Research Institute.
