Salini Impregilo partners with the University of Technology Sydney to debate on the future of Australia’s infrastructure

Salini Impregilo partnered with the University of Technology Sydney (UTS) to host an evening event where world leading experts discussed the future of Australia’s infrastructure.

Flexible Cities. Advancing Australia event took place at UTS on Tuesday 20 November with Salini Impregilo and UTS welcoming industry, government, academics and students to attend.

The event featured a keynote address by one of the world’s most influential architects and engineers, Professor Carlo Ratti from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), Boston, US.

Professor Ratti has been named one of the “50 most influential designers in America” and is listed in the “Smart List: 50 people who will change the world”. He is currently the Director of Senseable City Lab, a research group that explores how new technologies are changing the way in which we understand, design and live in cities.

Key findings of the new Economist paper Flexible Cities. The future of Australian infrastructure have been presented by the Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU) Asia Editorial Director. The paper explores global trends and international best practices and considers how Australia can develop the capabilities to both plan and build more flexible and adaptive infrastructure that can serve the successful expansion of its cities.

A panel discussion took place after the presentations, with guests encouraged to participate in a lively question and answer session.
