WHY INFRASTRUCTURE MATTERS AND HOW DATA HELPS US TO DELIVER BETTER SERVICES FROM INFRASTRUCTURE

2:15pm-3:15pm on Saturday 19 March

Times shown are in GMT (UTC +0) up to the 26th March. For events on or after 27th March times are in BST (UTC +1).

Department of Engineering, LT0, Trumpington Street, CB2 1PZ

Dr Jennifer Schooling OBE, Director of the Cambridge Centre for Smart Infrastructure and Construction, discusses smart infrastructure – what it is and why it matters.

The Code for the Built Environment, launched June 2021, is focused on the physical asset base. There are other things that cities and communities have to grapple with; the built environment does not exist in isolation. The UK government’s target of Net Zero by 2050 is a positive step, but challenging to deliver because current carbon emissions are so high. Technology will assist in reaching this goal but behaviour change is also necessary, influencing people at a professional level, and making a difference through our jobs. 

This event is part of the Department of Engineering’s Community Open Day.
