Oxford University Environmental Change Institute: Hosted at the ECI, ITRC MISTRAL is the second phase of the Infrastructure Transitions Research Consortium and aims to develop and demonstrate the next generation of models, methods and tools that are needed to inform strategic infrastructure system decision making across scales from local to global. MISTRAL will run until 2021 and will extend our analytical capacity across different scales of decision making, thereby helping to inform decision makers in devolved administrations and local authorities.
