Hosted by the MIT Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering in collaboration with the MIT Industrial Liaisons Program (ILP), Infrastructure Innovation in a Changing Environment will explore new economic opportunities and market-driven responses to the challenges facing large-scale infrastructure projects. Join leading thinkers and practitioners from industry, academia, and the public sector to discuss the impact of issues ranging from aging or nascent infrastructure and population growth to the emergence of massive data, new transportation technology, advanced energy sources, and security. The design and operation of infrastructure is critical to people everywhere, a leading element to ensure the sustainability of our planet, and provides many opportunities for leadership and innovation.
