MISTRAL is phase 2 of the Infrastructure Transitions Research Consortium (ITRC), expanding the scale and reach of our NISMOD system.
Our vision is for complex infrastructure decisions to be guided by our systems analysis ability. Using our pioneering tools, decision-makers are able to visualise and assess how all of their infrastructure systems are performing, help to pinpoint vulnerabilities and quantify the risks of failure.
We perform ‘what-if’ analysis of proposed investments and explore the effects of future uncertainties, such as population growth, new technologies and climate change. Our tools are being used to inform national infrastructure decision-making in the UK – we're expanding this capability to other national settings globally. Discover more…
