The API through its Australian Property Research and Education Fund has awarded the first round of research grants to three projects. These projects were selected from 26 applications across the five defined research topics which were set to tackle challenges and opportunities for property professionals in the years ahead. Five expert panels reviewed and assessed the applications before review by the APREF Research Committee and API Board.

Details of each topics and the researchers will be shared next week. For now the successful applications are:

  1. Big Visual Data Analysis Using Artificial Intelligence for Mass Valuation of Residential Properties in Australia (researchers: Vincent Hoang /K Nguyen Thanh / A Blake) Queensland University of Technology
  2. Valuation @ Risk. (researchers: Georgia Warren-Myers/ Lucy Cradduck) University of Melbourne and Queensland University of Technology
  3. Urban densification through private land assembling in inner and middle suburbs for decentralised mixed/single use BTR development
    (researchers: Jyoti Shukla/D Stojanovic/P Tiwari ) University of Melbourne

We look forward to sharing the outcomes with Members via webinars and publications as the projects unfold.
