The UTS Institute for Public Policy and Governance (UTS:IPPG) is actively involved in a wide variety of engagement activities both across Australia and internationally. As well as a significant program of international development projects, the Institute leads or participates in projects on key issues such as leadership, business excellence and governance.
Another activity is the Institute’s seminar series which aims to provide thoughtful and stimulating seminars by leading national and international academics and practitioners on important and contemporary issues. These events are also used to showcase local government innovation and best practice. To see some past events hosted by UTS:IPPG/ the Centre for Local Government click here (opens an external site).
