What is Research and Learning?

Research and Learning was established as a centralised function within Landcom to develop and maintain strategic relationships with the education sector including schools, TAFE NSW and universities.

Students are the future workers and residents of our city. We believe their aspirations, ideas and innovations are critical in shaping great places for future generations that offer the best standards of urban design and social planning. By collaborating on two-way research and learning initiatives, we believe our projects offer a unique educational legacy and help expand innovation, skills and knowledge in the areas of urban development. 

What do we do

We work with educational institutions to develop programs that have positive and enriching learning outcomes for students, teachers and academics. These programs ensure students at all stages of their learning have the unique opportunity to be involved in once-in-a-generation urban development projects.
