Australia Perspectives on Infrastructure webinar

What causes communities to trust and support infrastructure projects (or not)? Find out in this exclusive ANU research briefing.

Webinar: Thursday 7 October 2021 - 12.30pm - 1.30pm (AEDST)

Join the ANU Institute for Infrastructure in Society (I2S) as we share insights from our latest research initiative - Australian Perspectives on Infrastructure.

At this exclusive research briefing we will share insights from 3500 Australian community members about their experiences inn infrastructure selection, planning, design and delivery.

Panellists - I2S Director Professor Sara Bice, Voconiq’s Dr Kieren Moffat and National Community Engagement for Infrastructure Forum’s Donna Groves, will then unpack the factors that community members say cause them to trust infrastructure proponents and to support or oppose major projects.

With stakeholder and community pressure reported to be one of the leading causes of major project delay this is a must-attend session for infrastructure professionals and policymakers alike.

Zoom details for this event will be supplied to registered attendees ahead of the event.

NCEIF is back for 2021. We are very pleased to invite you to the 2021 Forum - to be held on 19 and 20 August 2021. The forum will be held at the stunning venue, Cloudland in Brisbane. Book now to secure your place early. After a year of not being able to connect, this forum will give you plenty of opportunities to learn, be inspired and network. We really look forward to seeing you!

Partnerships for our 2020 conference are now available. A partnership is ideal for organisations wanting to gain access to a rapidly growing network of enthusiastic and committed community and stakeholder engagement professionals who are becoming increasingly important to government, business and industry.

Sadly, the NCEIF team have made the decision to cancel the 2020 Forum. It was a hard decision to make but given the current circumstances, one that was necessary. We feel there is a need for a sense of normality to return before we can confidently release dates for our next Forum.
