Infrastructure Transitions
Research Consortium

ITRC delivers research, models and decision support tools to enable analysis and planning of a robust National Infrastructure (NI) system. The research addresses major challenges for the energy, transport, water, waste and ICT systems.

The consortium brings together seven leading UK universities to conduct a five-year programme of research that:

  • establishes a series of long term visions for National Infrastructure in the UK;
  • models the interdependencies between infrastructure sectors;
  • analyses the vulnerabilities and risks of infrastructure failure;
  • explores the relationship between infrastructure and economic growth.
