Join us on 29 September at 4 pm for “Model before you build, build, build: systems analysis of the future of national infrastructure”, the first in a series of webinars brought to you by the Infrastructure Transitions Research Consortium (ITRC).
This webinar offers an introduction to NISMOD and DAFNI from Professor Jim Hall; remarks on the future of national infrastructure and systems analysis from James Richardson, Chief Economist at the National Infrastructure Commission, and Mark Enzer, CTO of Mott MacDonald & Head of CDBB’s National Digital Twin Programme.
ITRC’s National Infrastructure Systems Model (NISMOD) simulates the energy, transport, digital communications, water and waste networks of the future and is in use regionally in the UK, at UK national level, and globally.
The webinar series marks a milestone in NISMOD’s journey: from September 2020 NISMOD will be hosted at the Data & Analytics Facility for National Infrastructure (DAFNI), a new £8million database and modelling system at the Science and Technology Facility Council’s Rutherford Appleton Laboratory in Harwell, Oxfordshire.
Additional webinars will run through October and November, exploring how infrastructure systems modelling is helping to create infrastructure that is more efficient, affordable and sustainable.
