The International Symposia for Next Generation Infrastructure is an initiative of the SMART Infrastructure Facility and our host partners University College London (UK), University of Oxford (UK), University of Virginia (US) and Delft University of Technology (NLD). The objective of the symposia series is to commence a genuine and co-ordinated global infrastructure research program about long term infrastructure and land use planning and to provide an opportunity for the best and sharpest minds from industry, government and academia work together to create not only best practice benchmarks but new knowledge to better inform strategies for long term prosperity.
We seek to establish international and interdisciplinary research collaborations that are designed to enable exploration of the development of Next Generation Infrastructure (NGI) in the context of understanding the interactions between infrastructure, the population it serves, technology and sustainability both now and into the future.
The Academic Steering Group is responsible for overseeing the symposia series, and assisting the current leadership team in executing each annual conference. The group is made up of five members, each representing one of the host partner institutions. These members have been associated with ISNGI since it’s inception, and several of them have played the key leadership roles in the conference.
