Sustainable and resilient infrastructure

Self repairing cities

Our research into sustainable and resilient infrastructure has established by collective of researchers and projects across the University of Leeds with common research interests in the links between infrastructure, resilience and sustainable energy and resource use.

Considering the central role infrastructure plays in enabling economic activity, providing societies basic wants and needs and mediating resource consumption, the research projects that have developed and are developing here are highly interdisciplinary and draw from a range of disciplines from chemistry to governance.

The link between the research in this diverse group is a desire to assist the development and management of our infrastructure systems to be truly sustainable and resilient for future generations.
