With the significant freeze of commonwealth support places (CSPs) and Turnbull’s determination to make further cuts within the higher education sector, many universities are having to rethink their masterplans in order to safeguard their future.
With this in mind Informa is holding its inaugural University Masterplans Summit 2018, due to take place June 28-29 at the Swissotel Sydney.
Providing a timely platform for multi-sector collaborations across construction, ICT, sustainable and smart campus design and architecture, the Summit will explore the implications of financial instability and uncertainty within the sector and hear expert perspectives on how best to move forward.
There will be a close look at digital masterplans, the way new models of industry-university collaboration can inspire infrastructure planning, and the way soft-edge campuses may feature in urban and regional ecologies.
A range of case studies will be featured from urban, peri-capital and regional universities, with a focus on commercial-university interfaces.
