The Data and Analytics Facility for National Infrastructure (DAFNI) was officially launched in July 2021 and is fast growing its community of researchers whose primary focus is delivering insights on how we can improve our everyday infrastructure.
The theme of this conference is Environmental Impacts. We want to share with you all the research that our community is involved in, particularly looking at climate adaptation and developing a greater understanding of how we might influence the path of climate change.
DAFNI’s initial project stage was funded by EPSRC as part of the UK Collaboratorium for Research on Infrastructure and Cities, and in July 2021 we were delighted to receive continuation funding from EPSRC as part of their Resource Only Strategic Equipment (ROSE).
This is a hybrid event – you can join virtually or in-person.
The virtual event is free and you will receive a link 2 days before the webinar
The in-person event is at the Barnes Wallis Building, University of Manchester. Tickets for the full day of talks, networking, lunch and refreshments are £50 – Standard and £20 – Student.
