Ahead of the 2020 Spring Budget and publication of the Infrastructure Finance Review, this event sought to explore how industry, government and society views infrastructure investment, and where the balance of risk and reward should lie.

This infracafé saw discussion about what younger professionals think about project funding and procurement models; and reflected on the potential offered by smart data on our asset operations.

Speakers included Julia Prescot, chief strategy officer at Meridiam and a National Infrastructure Commissioner, Hannah Vickers, CEO of the Association for Consultancy and Engineering; and Selma Salkovic, an associate at Aviva Investors. The discussion was moderated by Rosie Hughes, innovation lead at AECOM and a member of the YPP.

The event was organised in partnership with the IPFA.
