The Infrastructure Research Theme brings together an interdisciplinary team to develop collaborative research with our industrial partners to support the delivery and maintenance of infrastructure, with a particular emphasis on road, rail and housing.
The two broad aims are to achieve greater efficiency from the existing infrastructure, and provide novel solutions for new construction.
