S 

Simulation: Using the latest scientific simulation tools to plan more liveable and productive cities and regions

M 

Modelling: Using state of the art integrated land use and transport modelling tools to inform policy makers of the full range of infrastructure options

A 

Analysis: Evidence based 'what if' scenarios to identify and support best possible infrastructure futures

R 

Research: Can we build infrastructure to meet the needs of twice today's population with half the resources and twice the liveability? Factor 8

T 

Teaching: Equip the next generation of infrastructure leaders to adapt and respond to radical social and technological change
The key to a better future is to engage the community AND POLICY MAKERS about planning, the future and how we meet their needs
the core of our research is to understand the critical interconnections AND interdependencies of the infrastructure network and the importance of feedback effects
