is dedicated to conducting research into developing modelling techniques to predict ways of improving the design, maintenance and operation of engineering systems in order to reduce the frequency and consequences of failure.
SMARTI European Training Network aims at forming 15 early stage researchers within a stimulating platform where key stakeholders of the transport infrastructure sector will work alongside worldwide experts in smartening of systems (developers of high-tech sensors, advanced monitoring equipment, automated structures, etc.,) with direct support from the roads, railways and airports managers.
SMARTI ETN brings together more than 30 partners, 19 of which from industry (11 SMEs) from 9 European countries, USA, Asia and Australia will have the un-missable opportunity of learning-by-doing, towards the smartening of transport infrastructures in Europe and beyond.
The Sustainable Pavements & Railways Initial Training Network is a training-through-research programme that is empowering Europe by forming a new generation of multi-disciplinary professionals capable of conceiving, planning and executing sustainable road and railway infrastructures. The SUP&R ITN, started at the beginning of October 2013, it’s a 4 million € effort entirely funded by the European Commission through its Marie Curie Actions 2012 of the FP7 programme 2006 – 2013. The University of Nottingham lead this effort which is the first of its kind and involves 29 partners between universities, research centres and companies/industries, from five EU countries (UK, Italy, France, Ireland and Spain) and the USA.
