We are working with national infrastructure partners to help them develop specific tools to make investment decisions and prepare for: future economic and demographic trends, emerging technologies, climate impacts and the disruption of extreme weather events.
The first long-term view of the UK’s infrastructure needs was published by the National Infrastructure Commission in July 2018. The National Infrastructure Assessment (NIA) calls for a more joined-up view of infrastructure, with significant investments needed to tackle road congestion, deal with water shortages and provide secure low-carbon energy supplies. The NIA is underpinned by ITRC-MISTRAL's advanced modelling and analysis of scenarios of the future.
ITRC-MISTRAL's National Infrastructure Systems Model (NISMOD) has been playing a crucial role in understanding the scope of future options for the UK’s infrastructure.
The National Infrastructure Commission has recommended that the Alan Turing Institute and the Centre for Digital Built Britain work with ITRC-MISTRAL on digital twin models with predictive capability.
