SIMULATING THE FUTURE OF NATIONAL INFRASTRUCTURE

The Infrastructure Transitions Research Consortium (ITRC) is a consortium of seven UK universities led by the University of Oxford. ITRC has created a globally unique set of simulation models and methodologies to enable long-term cross-sectoral planning of sustainable and resilient infrastructure systems. The ITRC collaborates with partners in government, industry, academia and international organisations at global, national and regional scales.
