Our researchers are driven by the desire to understand. They work to uncover new knowledge and shed light on the world's biggest challenges. From tackling Meningococcal B to finding energy solutions for the future, our discoveries make a difference to people's lives across the world.
At Research Tuesdays we share this knowledge, every month. If you're curious about the changing world, we invite you to join us.
Research Tuesdays goes virtual
The University of Adelaide is monitoring the COVID-19 situation, and continues to take action in line with the latest Federal Government announcements. As a result Research Tuesdays will offer both in-person and virtual access through Zoom and Facebook Live.
A virtual Research Tuesdays experience will enable audiences to continue to experience the lectures in a safe and healthy environment. The lectures will remain on the second Tuesday of the month, with the next lecture live streamed on Tuesday 9 February, 5.30-6.30pm.
Australia’s housing has proven to be an invaluable public health asset during the pandemic. It’s enabled many of us to isolate, work and school our children in relative comfort, free from the risk of viral exposure.
But that experience hasn’t been universal; and COVID-19’s ongoing impact continues to raise important questions regarding the future of housing in our country.
Could our dwellings be better designed to meet our increasing need for flexible spaces and energy efficiency? Could they better protect our physical and mental wellbeing? And how can we ensure property renters are no less supported than property owners?
At the University of Adelaide we’re leading significant national research into these, and many other related issues—social, economic and environmental—to help inform the Australian Government’s housing policy. In this timely presentation, we’ll tell you what we’ve learned.
Professor Emma Baker leads the University of Adelaide’s Centre for Housing, Urban and Regional Research. She is also Deputy Director of the National Health and Medical Research Council’s newly established Centre for Research Excellence in Healthy Housing, and coordinates the European Network for Housing Research Working Group on the Residential Context of Health.
Date: Tuesday, March 9
