ABOUT ITRC

WHO WE ARE

The UK Infrastructure Transitions Research Consortium (ITRC) is a collaboration of seven universities and over 55 partners from infrastructure policy and practice. ITRC’s research provides concepts, models and evidence to inform the analysis, planning and design of resilient national, regional and local infrastructures across the globe.

We investigate infrastructure and its interdependencies in energy, digital communications, solid waste, transport, waste water, water supply and infrastructure governance. We have developed the world’s first national infrastructure system-of-systems model, NISMOD, which has been used to analyse long-term investment strategies as well as risk and vulnerability in infrastructure networks nationally and globally.
