SMART Infrastructure Facility

At SMART, we recognise that the world is changing, not only because of technology and climate change, but also the impact of an aging population. This means that infrastructure will need to change too.

SMART brings together experts from fields such as transport, water, energy, economics and modelling and simulation and provides a state-of-the-art facility to support this important research. An international leader in applied infrastructure research, SMART is helping to address the challenges of infrastructure planning and management both now and into the future.
