About this event

The resilience of UK infrastructure is critical to our social and economic wellbeing. Major failures of infrastructure, as experienced by many areas of the UK recently, has not only directly led to loss of life and property but has also placed additional long-term burdens on communities, industries and UK economic forecasts.

The key infrastructure systems of energy, transport, water, waste and ICT are individually extremely complex but they do not exist in isolation from one another. Understanding how they could fail individually or together is a major undertaking. The development of innovative world class infrastructure services which are resilient to these failures is an even greater challenge.

The discussion period will be with a panel of our speakers where comments and ideas, as well as questions will be actively encouraged.

Please note: Attendance is by invitation only.
