Ensuring the UK is prepared for the sudden impacts of extreme floods, water and food shortages, energy failures and other challenges is a crucial priority. UK Research and Innovation (UKRI) has announced a £4 million investment to establish a national Centre of Excellence for Resilient Infrastructure Analysis.


Starting in April 2023, the centre will support data analysis to foster research into resilience in the natural and built environment. The centre will help to tackle these priority challenges by bringing together the many strands of research needed to create more resilient cities and societies. This is an extension of the UKRI-funded Data and Analytics Facility for National Infrastructure (DAFNI) platform, which aims to improve the efficiency, reliability, and sustainability of infrastructure through data and analytics. Investment comes via the Science and Technology Facilities Council (STFC) scientific computing department as part of UKRI’s ‘Building a secure and resilient world’ strategic theme.
