AHURI’s Multi-Year Research Projects are the flagships of the AHURI research program. These projects anticipate and respond to the national housing and urban research priorities of the Housing Ministers’ Conference.
Multi-Year Research Projects are integrated suites of projects that extend over three years and tackle research questions that are complex and/or longitudinal in nature. They are collaborative, combining the expertise of a number of AHURI Research Centres and partners in government, industry and the community sector.
