Bridging the gap between academic research, data analysis and strategic infrastructure planning
The UK's next generation platform to support the development of essential infrastructure services, revolutionising the UK's ability to adapt to a changing climate and technological landscape.
DAFNI will revolutionise the UK’s ability to remain at the forefront of infrastructure research and innovation. Its state-of-the-art compute power will provide analytics and simulation across all infrastructure domains and its next generation visualisation will provide detailed information to better inform decision making. This will not only provide a greater understanding of the infrastructure needs for services for every household in the UK, but enable greater research into demand and therefore ensuring that the UK has an infrastructure that is both resilient and able to respond to an unpredictable future.
