New Evidence-Based Policy Inquiries
28 Apr 2016
Further project details are now available for the Inquiries funded through the 2016 National Housing Research program
Details of the supporting research projects for each of the four new Evidence-Based Policy Inquiries are now available. These supporting research projects will build the knowledge and generate new ideas critical to answering each key policy question and will also inform the final Inquiry report.
Each Inquiry will focus on a significant policy reform priority as determined a working group comprising AHURI Research Centre Directors alongside Federal and state and territory government leaders.
