Itrc aim and ambition

ITRC Aim andAmbition

Aim: To develop and demonstrate a new generation of simulation models and tools to inform the analysis, planning and design of national infrastructure

Challenges:

  • Analysing the long term state of NI systems

  • Uncertainties e.g. in demand, economic conditions, costs, performance

  • The complexity of multiple governance arrangements and projects

  • The capacity of UK industry to compete in globalised markets for infrastructure services
