Meeting the challenges and opportunities of the future requires government and industry to boldly embrace innovation across the infrastructure project lifecycle. This is the path to ensuring that existing and new infrastructure creates lasting social and economic value for everyone and empowers future generations.
InfraChallenge is a global competition that gives participants the opportunity to bring their solutions to a global market and contribute to a brighter infrastructure future. This year, InfraChallenge is looking for technology-based solutions to building better, more resilient infrastructure and maintaining existing assets to enhance quality and resilience.
Applications for the 2021 competition closed on 12 March 2021. The top 10 teams were announced in July, and the InfraChallenge winner, Canadian
start-up IRIS, was announced at the online Final 16 September 2021.
InfraChallenge 2021 is supported by the Italian G20 Presidency.
The program of the Italian G20 Presidency hinges on three thematic pillars: People, Planet and Prosperity. In line with these pillars, the Presidency seeks to strengthen infrastructure by embarking on a transformative infrastructure agenda to increase resilience, improve maintenance of existing assets, promote the development of future digital and sustainable infrastructure, and foster the inclusion of the most vulnerable groups. Supporting InfraChallenge contributes directly to these objectives of the Italian G20 Presidency.
