Strategic Direction

Value Proposition

PATREC has been constituted for the purposes of conducting collaborative, applied research and teaching in support of policy in the connected spaces of transport and land use planning. 

The value proposition of PATREC is:

Capitalising on our extended [international] network of academic expertise and policy partners, our value proposition is to broker and conduct applied research and teaching in support of policy in the connected spaces of transport and land use planning through the following four key strategic activities:

  • multi-disciplinary, multi-institutional applied research in response to identified agency research requirements and knowledge gaps;
  • knowledge transfer through academic and less formal publications, connection events and a website as a reliable and accessible resource for researchers and policy-makers;
  • training, predominantly in the form of professional development through short courses, executive programs and “expert” courses on key topics, conducted in collaboration with other professional and industry bodies where possible; and
  • attracting additional research funds through business development;

in order to advance the knowledge base and forge new and innovative evidence-based solutions for effectively planning and managing Western Australia’s future.
