City Futures Research Centre UNSW Built Environment

Seminar Series



Launched in March 2021, the Centre’s new seminar program is a platform to share and discuss research findings on urban policy and analytics. It is a forum for Centre researchers and higher degree students, as well as for invited/visiting guests working in our field. We very much hope this will draw interest from academic colleagues in the broader Faculty and beyond, as well as from partners in government and industry. 

Scheduled fortnightly on Fridays from 4-5pm, the program will at least initially operate in a COVID-safe ‘hybrid’ format where a limited number of participants can attend physically at the campus (in the Red Centre Building) or can otherwise join online via MS Teams.
