The International Symposium for Next Generation Infrastructure Australia 2013, hosted by the University of Wollongong, marked the commencement of a co-ordinated global infrastructure research program focussed on long term infrastructure and land use planning. It saw 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. The Symposium explored the Grand Challenge: “What is required to design, develop and carry through the effective provision of Infrastructure to sustain the development of modern society?” and “Given that infrastructure is not an ‘engineering artefact’ but an ‘agent of change’, is it possible to imagine infrastructure systems that can meet the needs of twice today’s population with half today’s resources while providing twice the liveability? (Factor 8)”
