Resilient Futures

Resilient Futures

The R-Futures programme is a 3 year multidisciplinary research project considering "the future developments in the UK's energy and transport infrastructure and the resilience of these systems to natural and malicious threats and hazards". It aims to identify the resilience implications of infrastructural decision making on a 2030/2050 timescale. Relevant and compelling future scenarios as well as hazard episodes are being developed as a context for analysis. In order to avoid an artificially segregated analysis, diverse stakeholders are being engaged to characterise the horizontal cross-sectoral interdependencies between relevant infrastructures and agencies, and the vertical interplay between micro, meso and macro layers of agencies and infrastructures. Models of relevant socio-technological systems are being built in order to capture the key causal relationships between actors. A fully interactive demonstrator system that operationalises resilience for key stakeholders is also being built.
