Cambridge Centre for Smart Infrastructure and Construction

Transforming infrastructure through smarter information
 

Cambridge Centre for Smart Infrastructure and Construction (CSIC)

An Innovation and Knowledge Centre funded by EPSRC, Innovate UK and Industry Partners, CSIC is a world-leading centre in the development of smart infrastructure and data-driven solutions to enable smarter whole-life asset management decisions, for both new infrastructure and existing assets. Through the University of Cambridge, CSIC is an active member of the UK Collaboratorium for Research on Infrastructure and Cities (UKCRIC) and is hosted in the UKCRIC-funded National Research Facility for Infrastructure Sensing (NRFIS).

We collaborate with partner organisations across policy, standards and industry to accelerate the timeframe for smart infrastructure innovations to become part of the industry mainstream, effecting transformative change and delivering benefits to all stakeholders.

CSIC works at a number of strategic levels to influence and inform changes required to secure greater efficiency in the design, construction and operation of our infrastructure, providing leadership in exploiting data from monitoring real infrastructure performance to reduce carbon, increase resilience and preserve resources.
