Day 1 – Friday 11 September 2020

12 noon CET1 to 4:15pm CET

Infrastructure after COVID – what will it look like?

The prime aim of global governments is to adjust to keeping people safe and society functioning efficiently in a future post-COVID world. However, it is clear that there will be significant implications for capacity and sustainable use of infrastructure going forward. Will we focus more on smart utilisation of infrastructure rather than expansion and what will sustainable infrastructure look like in the future? How can it be made more resilient? What are the key economic, financial and legal drivers impacting the sector? How will our cities and environment be designed in the new normal?

Navigating change and delivering infrastructure in the new normal.

On Day 1 of the international online FIDIC conference, a global perspective on infrastructure demand has been shared by leaders in the industry. On Day 2 of the conference, the implications of post-COVID in a world that has changed will be shared by representatives of different stakeholders in our industry. How will we need to change the way we work and adapt processes to meet the challenge of the new normal? Remote working and the use of digital technologies have become even more widespread as a result of the pandemic. How will governments, financial institutions and private sector interact in the future? Will professional conditions change our current way of financing and contracting projects? Can we create a society that is more resilient and agile in order to deal with future crises and recover from the aftershocks of COVID-19?
