Research Summit

Research Summit

This half day summit brings together practitioners, academics and students to identify research trends and unearth opportunities for collaboration on research into both prescient and unforeseen issues. Hosted by Queensland University of Technology and AILA, this inaugural national event expands the scope of landscape architectural research, both in the manner in which it is conducted and the research questions that it will address. Presented in two parts, the summit will encourage audience discussion and concludes with a Q&A wrap of the key steps to advance research forward, including participation from AILA National Council.

The Summit is free to attend. Bookings required by Monday 13 October.
