A major new initiative – the UK Collaboratorium for Research on Infrastructure & Cities (UKCRIC) – has been launched to coordinate interdisciplinary research and develop a new coherent approach to drive delivery of world class infrastructure in the UK.

At this evening lecture, Professor Brian Collins – the leader and mastermind behind the initiative – will present its transformative vision and means of delivery.

The presentation will summaries the main global drivers of change and explore civil engineers' responsibilities in supporting the needs of future generations.

Professor Collins will also cover key topics on city sustainability, resilience and liveability, drawing on his experience as senior member of the Liveable Cities Research Consortium and leader of a Consortium for Infrastructure Interdependencies and Novel Business Models.
