Next Generation Engagement Project – National Consultation Open Now

With an unprecedented $100 billion infrastructure program being delivered nationally and around $20 billion in projects delayed, cancelled or mothballed due to community opposition over the past decade, the Next Generation Engagement team is inviting infrastructure professionals, policy makers and impacted communities to comment on the early findings of the groundbreaking Next Generation Engagement Project.


The Research Priorities Summary Report represents the results of a pilot, industry-wide survey and workshops with almost 200 leading infrastructure practitioners and policymakers across Australia.

“Through this early work we’ve identified industry’s top priorities and have set out a plan to help address those issues through a globally relevant research program. We now want to test those ideas with industry, government and the broader community to make sure it passes the ‘real world’ test,” Research Director Dr Sara Bice said.

Your feedback will inform a final report, due to be released in November, which will set the agenda for a three to five year year international research program – the first of its kind.
