Successful joint ventures of the future will include technology considerations at their heart.
This module assesses how the issues of intellectual property, innovation and technology impact on joint ventures when delivering global mega infrastructure projects.
Planning for maximum success over the life of an infrastructure asset or project will require JVs to collaborate and share data and to navigate their way through a myriad of compliance and intellectual property rights concerns.
Chief Technical Officer, Mott MacDonald
Second-guessing specific future technology solutions will be almost impossible, but a focus on awareness of emerging technologies and providers, compliance, contracts and collaboration, will all help to mitigate any potentially disruptive impacts
The most successful JVs will be those that find a way to give stakeholders the right structures to allow maximum opportunities for collaboration and technological flexibility
