We emerge from a period of disruption which has accelerated the use of digital services in every facet of our personal and working lives, into a world where the global challenge of decarbonisation requires the construction and infrastructure industry to reinvent its methodologies and report on its progress in achieving urgent change.
Increased use of data and technology across the infrastructure sector is vital to a sustainable future and this module assesses how the issues of intellectual property, innovation and technology impact on joint ventures when delivering global mega infrastructure projects.
Planning to realise the potential of data over the life of an infrastructure enterprise will require JVs to be connected to and empowered by technology, 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
