Advancing property research and educating tomorrow’s leaders
The Australian Property Research and Education Fund Ltd was established to advance the twin arms of research and education, training and development; in the property industry including specifically in valuation and land economy. The Fund has DGR status and is a registered charity with the Australian Charities and Not-for-profits Commission.
For any enquiries, please contact email@example.com.
The APREF Board oversees the work of the Fund. To support the achievement of Fund objectives, two Committees in Research and Education were established. Committee members were invited with the aim of providing the desired mix of current skills in academic research, education and practitioner skills.
The role of the Research Committee is to facilitate the undertaking of scientific research in the property industry, specifically in the fields of valuation and land economy.
The role of the Education Committee is to guide the award of scholarships, bursaries and prizes for the purpose of advancing education, training and development activities that relate to valuation and land economy.
