Complex Infrastructure Systems: Science and Practice

Professor Liz Varga, Cranfield University (biography attached)

Infrastructure systems embrace not only the disciplinary fields of energy, water and waste, transport, and telecommunications, but also the inter-connections between these systems, and the systems which they depend on and which depend on them, including the environment and the climate.  The whole is a complex ecosystem of innovation, co-evolution and opportunity but the darker side involves issues of definition and pluralism, measures and beneficiaries, interdependency and resilience, and methods for science and practice.  This seminar takes a broad overview of complex infrastructure systems, and elaborates on the perspective using a number of research project examples.

The seminar will take place in room C1, in the George Begg Building on Sackville Street– number 17 on the map here-  http://www.manchester.ac.uk/discover/maps/interactive-map/?id=14
