New ITRC webinar series marks milestone achievements

Aug 12, 2020

From September to November 2020, the Infrastructure Transitions Research Consortium (ITRC) held a series of webinars to show how its infrastructure systems modelling is helping to create infrastructure that is more efficient, affordable and sustainable.

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.
