UKCRIC - National Buried Infrastructure Facility

Lead Research Organisation: University of Birmingham
Department Name: Civil Engineering

Abstract

Documents in support of the delivery of the UKCRIC NBIF and TRAIN Rig capital facilities

Planned Impact

Multiple impacts as listed in the UKCRIC Science and Business Cases
 
Description UKCRIC-NBIF is one of a number of new facilities that are being developed to transform the way that research is done in the UK on infrastructure and cities. This new way of collaborating, rather than competing, amongst institutions is a work in progress, but the ideas are being embraced by local and national government, and industry, as new research programmes are being formulated. It has also spawned collaboration between universities on doctoral education programmes.
