Data & Analytics Facility for National Infrastructure

DAFNI is the National Platform to satisfy the computational needs in support of data analysis; infrastructure research; and strategic thinking for the UK’s long term planning and investment needs. The platform will support academic research that is aiming to provide the UK with a world leading infrastructure system that is more: efficient, reliable, resilient and affordable. It will achieve this by enabling the research community to conduct research that is able to generate new insights at a higher level of detail and accuracy than ever before.

The launch of the DAFNI system represents a monumental milestone in developing the UK’s Data and Analytics Facility for National Infrastructure. With Climate change impacting our nation, it is now more important than ever to understand how we can better prepare the UK for extreme events. DAFNI will provide the UK with infrastructure data analysis and previously unseen levels of computer performance providing greater insights to inform policy decisions and therefore lead the world in our ability to prepare for these extreme events.
