The Australian Property Research Education Fund (APREF) was established by the API in 2018 to support the Australian Property Industry by facilitating both scientific research, education, training and development specifically in the fields of valuation and land economy.
APREF will release research topics again this year and we would like to seek member input regarding topics you see as important for future research in the property profession. We do not wish to repeat the successful topics from 2020 (listed below).
In 2020 APREF awarded its first three grants for research in the following three areas:

- Building resilience within the Australian property industry
- Land Economy: adaptive sustainable use
