DAFNI: Data and Analytics Facility for National Infrastructure launch event

6 July 2017

We’ve started a year-long consultation process to ensure that DAFNI’s capabilities can be applied to the management and development of infrastructure systems, so addressing the challenges our society is facing. We’ll be looking for feedback, comments and guidance to create a facility that will transform the way that infrastructure is delivered in the UK and globally. We will work with people, companies and partner organisations to find and drive the science and technology innovations that will enhance the UK economy.
