Budget commits funds to infrastructure research

The government confirmed £138M funding for the UK Collaboratorium for Research in Infrastructure and Cities (UKCRIC), which is expected to be matched by UK industry.

The new funding stream will apply research to ensure that the UK’s infrastructure is resilient and responsive to environmental and economic impacts.

Cambridge University professor of geotechnical engineering Robert Mair said that the announcement was a significant step forward for innovative research.

The government has said that UKCRIC will have hubs in London, and further centres initially in Birmingham, Newcastle, Sheffield and Southampton.
