Who are we?

The Australian Housing and Urban Research Institute (AHURI) is a national independent research network with an expert not-for-profit research management company, AHURI Limited, at its centre.

What is our mission?

AHURI has a public good mission to deliver high quality research that influences policy development to improve the housing and urban environments of all Australians.

What are our strategic goals?

Through active engagement, AHURI’s work informs the policies and practices of governments and the housing and urban development industries, and stimulates debate in the broader Australian community.

AHURI does this by:

  1. Influencing policy development and practice change.
  2. Delivering high quality evidence.
  3. Maximising value for stakeholders.
  4. Building research capability and national capacity.

We undertake evidence-based policy development on a range of issues, including: housing and labour markets, urban growth and renewal, planning and infrastructure development, housing supply and affordability, homelessness, economic productivity, and social cohesion and wellbeing.

Together with the New South Wales Department of Family and Community Services, AHURI is pleased to be hosting the National Housing Conference 2017 in Sydney.
