The Centre will act as a major repository for research and policy development across a range of issues affecting the region and will be a valuable resource for all those who are involved in Western Sydney.

Professor O'Neill said the University of Western Sydney has a proven capacity for research and development, and the Centre will help direct these institutional capabilities to address the region's policy needs.

"For too long Western Sydney has been portrayed as a region of planning crisis and inadequate infrastructure provision," said Professor O'Neill.

"We need to work with business and government to generate new policy insights, and the Centre will help bring all the available resources together to address the challenges of the region in innovative ways," he said.
