Transport and Population Research Network

The University of Queensland has committed $1.75 million for the period 2017-2021, to establish and promote the Transport and Population Research Network (TPRN).

The aim of the TPRN is to deliver on the grand challenge of urban infrastructure: to stimulate the renewal and development of transport systems to enhance and sustain continued urban growth, creating cities with long-term sustainable and integrated transport systems and technology. The network will also continue to develop and deliver a world-class training program to address a critical skills shortage in transport planning, transport engineering, and spatial and temporal data in transport and population.

We have been awarded an ARC Linkage project with LicenSys for Smart Sensors, capturing multi-domain sensors as well as the Internet of Things (IoT) to ensure safe, secure, and efficient transport of freight and people.
With TAP funding from the Queensland Department of Transport and Main Roads, UQ has been investigating transport engineering and planning policy challenges facing Queensland.
The School has an agreement with the Port of Brisbane, focusing on research in transport engineering and economics. The agreement also funds a post-doctoral research fellow in transport economics.
The joint research of SEES’ Queensland Centre for Population Research and the Queensland Treasury perform an analysis to support demographic and household forecasting, and development policies.
