Coordination Node for UKCRIC

Lead Research Organisation: University College London
Department Name: Civil Environmental and Geomatic Eng

Abstract

UKCRIC is based around (i) a linked network of physical test facilities, integrated with (ii) a series of "living city" observatories, through which the functioning of cities and infrastructure and how people actually use them will be monitored, analysed and assessed; and (iii) a distributed capability for infrastructure data, visualisation, modelling and simulation.

UKCRIC does not have a single geographical home. Each academic partner leads a theme and contributes to others, giving a strong collaborative network with multiple centres and connections between them. This spreads the benefits geographically and into teaching programmes throughout UK HE. It does however mean that a strong, sustainable, collaborative leadership/ management/ coordination function, distributed but centrally directed and able to represent the UKCRIC community as a whole, is needed to realise the full potential benefits.

This proposal is to fund coordination and leadership of UKCRIC as a whole, and its multidisciplinary research programme, through a Coordination Node (CN).

The aim is to provide coherent and globally-respected leadership of UKCRIC in
*setting the transdisciplinary research agenda
*delivering collaborative, multidisciplinary moving towards transdisciplinary research while ensuring that facilities are used widely, fully and effectively
*ensuring the results of research are implemented for the benefit of society, the environment and the UK economy.
The objectives are to
*establish and maintain governance and operational structures and protocols, including criteria for engagement, collaboration, use of facilities, and expansion of initial membership
*engage stakeholders to develop an holistic, multi-disciplinary vision and research strategy, with key emphases on society, sustainability, resilience and global opportunity
*foster trans-disciplinary, multi-stakeholder working, learning and knowledge sharing across UKCRIC's research portfolio, while ensuring wide, full and effective use of facilities
*identify and exploit opportunities and pathways for impact, mechanisms for innovation and advocacy for influencing policy
*develop the next generation of research leaders, address the skills demands of the infrastructure sector and coordinate doctoral and other high-level training
*progress a business model for sustaining the CN after the proposed funding expires.

Benefits: UKCRIC will address near term issues such as optimising investment and use of infrastructure. In the longer term, it will develop new materials, techniques and technologies. At the highest level, it will understand how to make the system of systems that constitutes a nation's infrastructure more resilient to extreme events and more adaptable to changing circumstances and contexts, and how it can provide services that are more affordable, accessible and useable to the whole population. It will also develop new transdisciplinary areas of activity that set research and policy agenda in the infrastructure arena.

The CN will add value through being transformative in viewing and exploiting emerging findings through an integrated infrastructure/ urban systems lens, engaging directly with a range of stakeholders including industry, city leaders and other end users. Research will be shaped by a range of considerations and voices, to give a multi-faceted understanding of future infrastructure systems demand, and how this might be shaped by societal and financial interventions. It will consider how, where and when technological, engineering and process advances can be exploited to best effect across the infrastructure and urban systems landscape, while allowing for the development of potential disruptors and changes in philosophy, eg from "predict and provide" to "decide and create".

Added value will also be achieved through coordinating a large set of research activities, drawing on existing work, to promote and deliver overarching cross-disciplinary goals.

Planned Impact

UKCRIC and the CN will engage and inspire the next generation of scientists and engineers, disseminating project findings and knowledge, providing an organising and coordination function for researchers and practitioners in core and allied fields of enquiry, and bringing a new diversity of contributions to stakeholders' notice and deliberations. While each individual research activity will have identifiable impact, the CN's role will be to (i) generate additional opportunities for impact at national and international scale by exploiting the critical mass of UKCRIC, (ii) advise PIs on impact pathways, (iii) support projects in dissemination and impact activities, and (iv) add value to project outputs, syndicating and integrating outputs across industries, sectors, and within an urban futures context.

Academic communities benefit as the CN will lead and facilitate collaborative transdisciplinary research, provide skills development in state of the art experimental apparatus and advanced numerical simulation and observational methods, ensure that research is informing teaching, and inspire the next generation of professionals.

Societal and economic benefits are very large. We shall break new ground in cultivating the infrastructure sector's capacity and ability to make use of science and engineering knowledge and innovation generated through UKCRIC. Interdisciplinary and cross-sector opportunities exposed by collaboration across the consortium have the potential to spawn game changing technologies and techniques. Our interventions will energize and broaden the scope of interest and exploration, thereby countering the often parochial outlook of sector based industries. Economic and societal impact will be achieved by

* engaging users in the definition, delivery, and exploitation of the research strategy and project portfolio - through the Stakeholder and International Advisory Boards together with more locally and sector based workshops, seminars and meetings
* establishing co-ownership of ideas developed, which encourages potential users to try out new technologies in practice
* disseminating project and integrated results to the wider user community, through articles in specialist trade and professional magazines and journals
* engaging with the media in the production of articles and programmes for the popular press and television; through existing links with journalists and producers
* contributing to popular science events including national and regional Science and Engineering Festivals, local interest groups, schools and activities aimed at encouraging minority groups to engage in engineering; using existing and new links with established programmes
* maintaining a high profile social media presence
* engaging with policymaking bodies and reviews; through the IAB, committee membership and submitting evidence in response to specific consultations, and researcher secondments.

Beyond the UK, the magnitude of the UKCRIC investment and ambition has already earmarked it as an initiative of international import and potential influence on global decisions on infrastructure policy and practice. Strong links exist between individual UKCRIC universities and major institutions with comparable research agendas in other countries. Enhancing the depth and breadth of these associations in order to attract research sponsorship and coordinate enquiry agendas across global problem sets is critical to the sustainability of UKCRIC in the medium to long term. Ensuring significant profile for UKCRIC and its outputs on the international stage will be achieved through; (i) targeting key conferences for multiple UKCRIC submissions and special sessions, (ii) organising journal special issues, (iii) developing formal partnerships with similarly ambitious initiatives in other countries, (iv) engaging with global players in the infrastructure and future cities field (e.g. United Nations, World Bank, OECD, European Investment Bank).

Description Infrastructure and Cities research is a vital component of investing in better infrastructure and better city design to make the situation better for everybody and for the environment. Coordinating the many strands of research needed to achieve this goal is vital for developing an holistic set of options to be available; this grant has enabled researchers to initiate and pioneer this complex journey and has created methods and approaches to the stewardship of coordination at a range of scales and in a number of contexts that will enable long term solutions and options to be created. Additionally, the award has generated a cadre of people who understand the complexity of the governance of wicked problems, and are capable of sharing this expertise and insight with others. This is absolutely vital for the sustainable, resilient, environmentally beneficial, and societally equitable stewardship of the very large investments in Infrastructure planned in the UK and globally.
Exploitation Route We are engaged with the National Infrastructure Commission, Infrastructure and Projects Authority, National Academies, relevant government departments and policy makers, networks of cities, industry bodies, standards bodies and regulators, The National Preparedness Commission, The Net Zero Infrastructure Industry Coalition and many others (see CN Common Outcomes for Collaborations and Partnerships and Engagement Activities) to influence their thinking on their roles, authorities, procedures and activities for the future, based on the coordinated research emerging from UKCRIC.

Investment sharing between Government and the UKCRIC universities has generated a suite of mission-oriented research facilities of unparalleled value to the UK science base, economy, and society. Future complementary investment will ensure that UKCRIC's full potential is realised: in doctoral and post-doctoral academies to secure a pipeline of research and practitioner talent; in targeted research and innovation programmes to deliver new underpinning science; in urban data systems to enable human-centred, liveable cities; and, in a lean integration function to ensure that UKCRIC continues to be a truly cross-regional, transdisciplinary, collaborative venture with meaningful relationships with industry and government.

To ensure resilience and aid the implementation of UKCRIC's objectives, the UKCRIC Transition Roadmap project is engaging across partners and stakeholders to build consensus and develop a visualisation of the key steps for the next five years.

UKCRIC is a catalyst for the co-creation with industry and government of insights and solutions, supports talented researchers to make best use of the UKCRIC facilities, and informs the reshaping of our urban and connected systems and governance so that they are delivered successfully and work for both people and planet.

These include, but are not limited to collaboration with: o The Net Zero Infrastructure Industry Coalition (UKCRIC is a founding member, and an active contributor to all NZIIC reports) o The Centre for Postdoctoral Development in Infrastructure, Cities and Energy (C-DICE) o The Livery Climate Action Group (LCAG) o The Digital Framework Task Group (DFTG) o The National Preparedness Commission (NPC) o The Carbon Reduction Code For The Built Environment This year UKCRIC funded five research projects (totalling £405,000) and seed-corn funded one ECR research proposal (£10,000): 1. PLEXUS PLUS: multi-scale soil scanning for evaluating abutment-soil interaction in Integral Abutment Bridges, 2. Accelerating UKCRIC Mission 3: Ownership, governance, and business models for infrastructure and urban systems (AM3), 3. Establishing a Competencies Framework for Infrastructure Policy Professionals, 4. UKCRIC transition decision support, 5. Suburban-fringe 'on-demand' algorithm based shared transport, and 6. Identifying the most suitable machine learning approach for a road digital twin. We believe that a number of the Collaborations and Engagement Activities logged in the UKCRIC Coordination Node (CN) entry indicate that UKCRIC is already having is making academic and non-academic impacts. The UKCRIC CN initially enabled UKCRIC to build on collaborations initiated through projects involving members of the UKCRIC CN team prior to UKCRIC (e.g. iBUILD, Liveable Cities, ITRC, Urban Futures, Railway Track for the 21st Century, Mapping the UNderworld). Examples of these collaborations include: UKCRIC hosting the fifth International Symposium for Next Generation Infrastructure (ISNGI 2017); Collaboration between UKCRIC, the ENCORE Network and EIS Council to host a workshop on Infrastructure System Resilience to the disruptive impacts of Black Sky Hazards. Which in turn led to collaboration between the Resilience Shift and EIS Council. The UKCRIC CN has amplified these impacts further in two ways. Firstly, by fostering closer collaboration between UKCRIC facilities. Secondly, by initiating new engagement activities, partnerships and collaborations between members of the UKCRIC Network and external bodies (for further evidence see CN Common Outcomes for Collaborations and Partnerships and Engagement Activities). Significant examples include, but are not limited to collaborative engagements with HS2, East West Rail, Cross Rail 2, Fawley Waterside, The National Infrastructure Commission, The National Preparedness Commission, Project X, ICE activities, the South-West Infrastructure Partnership, RAEng activities, and Flood modelling for NIC. UKCRIC has captured a number of key performance indicators which highlight significant engagement with external stakeholders. Since inception UKCRIC has attracted £40M of research funding from commercial sources and supported 88 SMEs in projects accessing the facilities. We're proactively promoting our mission to engage with end-users, partners from industry, academia and Government, having featured in more than 35 media articles, and in 2021 hosted 85 UKCRIC events across its members. UKCRIC's vision for the future is far-sighted and long term. Continuing commitment to investment in UKCRIC will enable a step change in the performance of UK infrastructure systems, create generational impacts, and recognise the contribution of the founding institutions by underwriting running costs and providing the human resources needed to realise the full potential of the original capital investment. However, the most pressing objective for the UK is to deliver on the current Comprehensive Spending Review priorities, to which UKCRIC will contribute as follows. 1. Strengthening the UK's economic recovery from Covid-19 by prioritising jobs and skills. Covid-19 has triggered a fundamental reassessment of how cities and their supporting infrastructures should function. The construction industry has been identified as a priority for post-Covid recovery, but we must not lose sight of the overarching need to achieve net zero greenhouse gas emissions, preserve biodiversity, avoid pollution and use the earth's resources in a sustainable manner. The new skillsets and knowledge agenda that UKCRIC's facilities were funded to deliver are critical for the efficient and sustainable delivery of these new urban visions. C-DICE together with plans for a Doctoral Academy and, Post-doctoral, ECR and CPD Training Centre is securing a pipeline of highly skilled research professionals in, and able to work across, a multiplicity of disciplines and sector specialisms, hence confidently tackling the challenges that lie ahead in infrastructure and cities. A whole new cohort of cutting-edge graduates will also be produced by the UKCRIC universities as UKCRIC transfers the latest infrastructure research into new undergraduate courses. The UKCRIC Doctoral Skills Network facilitates opportunities to engage with and support a national network of postgraduate and early career researchers and offer additional skills training and professional development for these future engineers. The development of transdisciplinary skills enables cross cutting themes to be fully embedded into policy and decision making across the breadth of the stakeholder community and drive co-created investment in underpinning research and development. 2. Levelling up economic opportunity across all nations and regions of the country by investing ininfrastructure, innovation and people - thus closing the gap with our competitors will spread opportunity, maximising productivity and improving the value add of each hour worked. A stronger integration capability will ensure that UKCRIC continues to be a truly cross-regional, collaborative institute enjoying meaningful relationships with industry and government - the ideal construct for levelling up. Levelling up across all regions will be facilitated by the UKCRIC network of regional centres, intensive collaboration between institutions from different parts of the UK, and deepening and productive relationships with the private sector, local government, investors, citizens and communities. UKCRIC insists on collaborative working and will spread leadership roles to benefit from UK-wide perspectives and to cement unprecedented host institutional commitment. Our fundamental tenet of inclusivity encourages early career researchers anywhere in the UK to engage and develop their research agenda within regional, national, and, ultimately, international frames of reference. UKCRIC is the ideal vehicle to drive the national levelling up agenda because of its: • Distribution across the UK, and the scale and quality of human resource and the multi-institutional commitment to collaboration it levers • Ability to drive and accelerate the translation of basic research into real societal impacts, including the creation of Industry Clusters to facilitate the translation of research into accessible clusters of UKCRIC resources and capabilities for a variety of industry partners • Already strong links with Local Authorities through the Urban Observatories, other University- Local Authority partnerships, and continuing partnerships with the Core Cities, Key Cities and LEP Networks • Improving outcomes in public services, including supporting the NHS and taking steps to cut crime and ensure every young person receives a superb education. Ineffectual and inadequate infrastructure has long been recognised as a contributing factor to poor health in urban centres. Transitioning to networked infrastructure systems and urban spaces having pro-health ambitions and impacts requires innovative engineering design informed by deeper understandings of the psychological and physical health impacts of human-infrastructure interactions. UKCRIC test facilities including PEARL (Person-Environment-Activity Research Laboratory) and the National Green Infrastructure Facility provide unique opportunities to explore the ways in which people interact with their environment and create new predictive models to support health, planning, construction and infrastructure development. The combination of urban observatories, modelling and laboratories makes UKCRIC ideally placed to examine the implications (including cybersecurity) and opportunities of digitally connected infrastructure, in collaboration with other national institutes such as the Alan Turing Institute. Contributions to national wellbeing and socially responsible behaviour are monitored. Successes in transdisciplinary problem-solving for global challenges will inspire students into STEM.

Impact Prof William Powrie was selected with Prof Andrew McNaughton (Southampton) and Prof Lord Robert Mair (Cambridge) to advise the Chairman of HS2 on the engineering design of HS2 infrastructure. Their work was cited in Recommendation 3 of the HS2 Chairman's Stocktake (August 2019) (HMG Official Sensitive - redacted version available at the given URL). In the context of challenging costs and deriving further efficiencies within the proposed scope of the railway, the Chairman says "I will continue to use Professor Andrew McNaughton, Lord Mair and Professor William Powrie to work with the HS2 Ltd Chief Engineer to examine the engineering assumptions behind existing designs". The Chairman's Stocktake was heavily cited and its cost estimates relied on in the Oakervee Review (December 2019), including a specific reference to risk arising from lack of information on ground conditions in Phase 2b. The Oakervee Review in turn underpinned the Prime Minister's announcement on 11 Feb 2020, so a direct line can be drawn from our research to the decision to proceed with HS2.

PI Contribution The Liveable Cities research team provided a suite of methodologies for enabling the better design and implementation of city interventions. The IAA award was used to trial these with different organisations; Birmingham City Council, Bristol City Council and Costain most intensively.
Collaborator Contribution Costain (a major civil engineering contractor) sent several delegates to a workshop to receive presentations on the methods, debate them in detail and work out how they might be applied to their core business. Individuals from Costain then contacted specific Research Fellows to advance their application of the thinking in Costain projects (e.g. street lighting in Sussex). Birmingham City Council provided staff time and case study sites.
Impact The primary outcome was always to educate and train professional staff in a different way of thinking and approaching their work. This was achieved, whether it was designing street lighting in Sussex, maintaining street trees in Bristol, designing green interventions in Birmingham or delivering a low-carbon energy zone in Coventry. The methodologies deliver greater social and environmental value. As new programmes of research are being proposed, we now have ready-made and willing collaborators to co-create proposals. This collaboration was multi-disciplinary, involving Construction, Transport, Environment, Infrastructure and Urban Systems, Health & Wellbeing, and Governance.

Results and Impact Foreword
by Dr Tom Dolan
UKCRIC's purpose, vision and mission statement are underpinned by a set of four deeply interdependent Scientific Missions. These Scientific Missions, reflect the collective belief of the UKCRIC team that Infrastructure and urban systems, and all governance structures associated with them, can and must play a pivotal role in addressing the climate emergency. Specifically, by enabling GHG emission reductions; enhancing systemic, societal and economic resilience to the disruptive impacts of global warming of at least 1.5 C; tackling other sustainability challenges; and driving realisation of societally beneficial outcomes that are equitable, inclusive and socially just.
As a consequence, there is strong alignment between UKCRIC's research capabilities, UKCRIC's research outputs, the collaborations with which UKCRIC is involved and COP26 priorities.
This COP26 themed special edition of the UKCRIC Newsletter, shares details of UKCRIC Climate Emergency linked research activities launched, presented or published at, during, or in the build-up to COP26. These include: research content from Prof Jim Hall, Dr Jennifer Schooling, Dr Tom Dolan, Prof Chris Rogers and PhD student Elisabeth Shrimpton, and UKCRIC NGIF; a personal reflection on COP 26 and the Glasgow Climate Pact (Dr Tom Dolan); updates from a number of UKCRIC collaborations; news and insights from UKCRIC Facilities NBIF, Birmingham Urban Observatory and PEARL; and a roundup of links to COP26 news from UKCRIC partner Universities.
This newsletter shares a snapshot of some of the many ways in which UKCRIC research is relevant to the Climate Emergency and COP26 objectives. If we have missed your research, please do let us know [hello@ukcric.com] and we will include details in our next newsletter. Additionally, if you have been inspired to contribute an Insight article for the UKCRIC website, would like further details on any newsletter stories, or to explore opportunities for future collaboration please contact us [hello@ukcric.com].

Results and Impact Opinion Piece commissioned by the Foundation for Science and Technology

Preventing further global warming (reducing global Greenhouse Gas emissions to Net Zero), tackling other emergent sustainability challenges and enhancing societal resilience to all resilience challenges (including those driven by global warming - GWDRC) are deeply interdependent Wicked Problems. Collaborative, societal scale responses that are systemic in scope and focused on systemic transformation are required. In this article I argue that National Infrastructure is a societally significant leverage point the transformation of which into a Net Zero enabling, sustainability supporting, resilience enhancing system has a critical role to play in catalysing societal progress toward a sustainable, resilient, Net Zero future.

The focus was on how industry and universities can work together to accelerate innovation, and included case studies on taking new ideas from low TRL right through to the implementation in the live railway. The conference is part of a coherent plan of activities over two or three years to strengthen relationships between industry and academia so it is difficult to attribute new relationships to a single event but the University is seeing an increase in approaches from SMEs in particular, which has always been a difficult constituency for us.

A group of universities including Southampton jointly attend, giving short talks and exhibiting case studies of innovation led by or underpinned by university research. The purpose is to raise awareness of the universities and advertise the range of facilities and capabilities we have, and our willingness to collaborate.
UoS gave two short presentations and participated in an exhibition area together with the Universities of Loughborough, Huddersfield and Birmingham and the UK Rail Research and Innovation Network.
Some conversations were held with new contacts but the most productive discussions were with staff from Network Rail, and ultimately this fed into the new Research Framework contracts reported elsewhere.

Results and Impact Quarterly meeting with the Group Safety & Engineering Director, Technical Authority, Network Rail and his senior technical team. Since March 2020 we have met (virtually) quarterly to address any and all infrastructure applied research and development matters affecting Network Rail. Major topics have included cost reduction, electrification, impacts of climate change, condition monitoring, and the performance and stability of historic earthworks (especially in the light of a fatal landslip in August 2020). Network Rail has agreed to fund four new PhD studentships (recruited in 2020 and commenced in Feb 2021) and support four more (to start in 2021).
Between the meetings there have been and continue to be other high level interactions, when topics have included the railway industry's response to Covid-19, reduction of embedded carbon and developing future proposals to EPSRC.

Results and Impact Guest Blog written for the International Lloyds Resilience Foundation funded and Arup led Resilience Shift project. A blog designed to raise the profile of Resilient Infrastructure Systems as an essential component of any response to emergent societal mission. In this case to explicit state the need for Infrastructure resilient as central to
Mission A: Limit Global Warming to 1.5 °C - Achieve net zero CO2 [eq] Emissions by 2050 at the latest
Mission B: Societal Resilience to 1.5 °C - Take immediate action now to ensure our quality of life is resilient to the impacts of global warming of at least 1.5° C by 2030

In this guest blog, Dr Tom Dolan, UKCRIC Senior Research Associate at University College London, discusses the role of our economic infrastructure. He suggests a critical need to take action and change the way we invest in infrastructure mitigation and resilience. What will it be, 'act now, save later' or 'delay now, pay later'?
