New technologies and changing lifestyles are reshaping the way that we use everyday services such as energy and transport – yet infrastructure is often slow to adapt. i-BUILD: Infrastructure BUsiness models, valuation and Innovation for Local Delivery brings together a range of expertise in economics, engineering and social sciences to bridge this gap.By focusing on infrastructure networks at the levels of towns and city neighbourhoods, the project seeks to identify shared dependencies between different sectors and promote more flexible, efficient delivery systems.
