Data & Analytics Facility for National Infrastructure to advance UK infrastructure research
Why is DAFNI needed?
The UK’s National Infrastructure Plan has set aside over £460 billion of investment for the next decade. However, it is not yet known what effect the investment will have on the quality and reliability of national infrastructure services, economic productivity, the resilience of society or its impacts upon the environment. This uncertainty exists as a result of the inherent complexity of infrastructure systems (energy, transport, digital communications, water etc.) and their interactions with people and the environment.
DAFNI represents an £8 million investment from the UK Collaboratorium for Research on Infrastructure and Cities (UKCRIC) to provide world leading infrastructure systems research capabilities and enhance the quality of outputs. DAFNI will improve the efficiency, reliability and sustainability of infrastructure through better sharing and use of data, exploitation of simulation and optimization techniques, and engagement with stakeholders through visualisation.
DAFNI will deliver…
Specialised software tooling
Novel ways of visualisation
