With Visiting Professor in Infrastructure, Investment and Construction, Ian Reeves CBE

This event is part of a seminar series hosted by Alliance Manchester Business School’s Infrastructure Development Research Group and will address the Economic and Social Value to Infrastructure.

Ian Reeves CBE, Alliance MBS Visiting Professor in Infrastructure, Investment and Construction, will contend that:

  • Undervaluing and underinvesting in the UK’s infrastructure over decades is at the heart of the UK’s economic and social decline, and that reversing this is critical to sustaining, let alone, improving our wellbeing.
  • The economic and social value of Infrastructure is far greater than we give credit for in our planning process, and
  • This is particularly true when we treat infrastructure as a dynamic, interconnected, integrated whole system, where the value reflects the product of, rather than the sum of, all of the individual parts.
