In its first phase (2011-2016) the Oxford University-led Infrastructure Transitions Research Consortium (ITRC) developed the world’s first family of national-scale system models for analysis and planning of interdependent infrastructure systems, marking a significant advancement in the UK’s long-term, national infrastructure planning capability. ITRC’s second phase, entitled MISTRAL (Multi-scale InfraSTRucture systems AnaLytics), builds upon the success of the past 5-years, advancing a next generation of systems models and analytical techniques, to support infrastructure decision making across scales ‒ from household to global scale. Water is one of the five key infrastructure components modelled within the ITRC, alongside energy, transport, waste and ITC.
