The UK Collabatorium for Research on Infrastructure and Cities (UKCRIC) aims to address the insufficient and unsustainable value extracted by services using national infrastructure. UKCRIC proposes to create and operate a national and international multidisciplinary research programme that addresses the issues of unaffordable and unsustainable infrastructure development, in a partnership between Industry, Government and Academia.
The UKCRIC project starts with enhanced capital investment in shared facilities in academic institutions but will involve further development of a wide range of multidisciplinary research and teaching programmes.
