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

 

The FIBE2 CDT will develop the next generation of PhD graduates who can create, shape and deliver the national vision
for UK infrastructure. They will be equipped with radical new thinking and approaches to tackle the dynamic and uncertain
challenges, and exploit opportunities associated with the technological, demographic, economic, social and environmental
changes that face our current and future infrastructure and be versatile and innovative in their solutions for the
maintenance, protection and improvement of infrastructure. The main objectives are to:

  • Train highly skilled research cohorts in resilient infrastructure to become catalysts for change
  • Forge expanded and new academia/industry collaborations to maximise the CDT impact
  • Build on Cambridge’s world leading research and unique centres of excellence in infrastructure
  • Broaden our CDT training and research landscape through strategic national initiatives
  • Enrich our strategic partnerships with leading international academic centres
  • Maximise the richness of the cohort-based training, through Alumni networks, ED&I & RI focus
  • Translate enriched CDT experience through outreach to broader student community and society
  • Grow our ‘FIBE’ brand as exemplar of UK excellence in training and innovation in infrastructure
