Covid sent the world into digital overdrive, but this overdrive is not without its challenges and opportunities. We are now looking at potentially a new technological revolution, new ways of working, new ways of raising finance and also new threats. Technology disrupters are probably one of the greatest changes to markets. Google is the new encyclopaedia, Zoom the new meeting room, Uber the new personal car, Twitter the new press release. This report explores how such changes not only affect our industry, but also the wider landscape in which infrastructure will be operating in the future.
Find out more about the digital lessons and ramifications arising from the Covid crisis by attending the launch of “Going digital – did Covid teach us anything?, the fifth report in the FIDIC State of the World series.
FIDIC State of the World webinars
FIDIC’s new State of the World series of reports will be launched on 18 February 2021 at an online event introducing the first report which will highlight the scale of the investment challenge facing the global infrastructure sector. In order to meet the United Nations sustainable development goals (SDG), trillions of dollars of investment will be needed in infrastructure going forward and our first report outlines the scale of the challenge facing the construction and infrastructure industry. Recognising the urgent need by most governments to kickstart the national economy after Covid, FIDIC’s future thought leadership reports in the State of the World series will cover the key issues of water, resilience infrastructure, net zero, smart contracting, and digital transformation. Each State of the World report will be launched as part of a webinar series, the details of which are outlined in the link below.
