Centre for Infrastructure Development (CID) Spring Seminar Series

The Centre for Infrastructure Development (CID) Seminar Series features professionals operating in the infrastructure business ecosystem and scholars developing work relevant to further our understanding of related practices.

Hence the series covers a wide range of perspectives including those of regulators, funders, promoters and their agents, operators, and project suppliers. The CID Seminar Series offers students, faculty and the community at large the privilege of learning directly from the leaders who are shaping the global infrastructure landscape for decades to come, and from distinguished scholars contributing to our understanding of empirical regularities. It also creates opportunity for students, faculty, and the community to meet and network. Guests will present and field questions from the audience and engage in meaningful and thought provoking discussions about critical infrastructure challenges and opportunities.
