Asset Institute

The Asset Institute is a continuation of the former Cooperative Research Centre (CRC) for Infrastructure and Engineering Asset Management (CIEAM). Like CIEAM, the Asset Institute is committed to creating industry-ready tools and methodologies that can be applied at the policy, governance and organisational levels.

The Asset Institute is built on the foundation of an internationally recognised research leader in its field — indeed CIEAM’s research helped underpin the development of asset management as an independent field in its own right. CIEAM has driven transformational change in the institutional culture surrounding engineering asset management and delivery at both the national and international level.

The Asset Institute is committed to continuing extensive stakeholder engagement ensuring our research and solutions are relevant, practical and timely. With full access to CIEAM’s extensive Body of Knowledge in engineering asset management the Asset Institute offers a range of capabilities aimed at making a positive difference to the field of asset management and, ultimately, community livelihoods.
