EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Future Infrastructure and Built Environment: Resilience in a Changing World (FIBE2)

 

Our vision for FIBE2 CDT is to lead the transformation in the resilience of our infrastructure through the creation of an inspirational doctoral training programme for talented cohorts from diverse academic and social backgrounds to conduct world-class, cutting-edge industry-relevant research. Our goal is to develop the infrastructure professionals of the future, equipped with a versatile and crossdisciplinary skillset to meet the most complex emerging challenges and contribute effectively to better infrastructure decision-making in the UK.

 

The FIBE2 CDT tackles the strategically important theme of infrastructure resilience in the context of five categories of threats (and associated opportunities):

(i) Infrastructure resilience against technological uncertainty

(ii) Infrastructure resilience against environmental causes:

(iii) Infrastructure resilience in a world of economic and political change

(iv) Infrastructure resilience to support urbanisation and demographic change

(v) Infrastructure resilience in a changing society and culture
