The Challenge

InfraChallenge invites applicants from around the world and across sectors to pitch big ideas that will drive digital transformation in a sector that has not been widely disrupted by digitisation.

The competition is calling for digital innovations that can be applied to solve economic or social infrastructure issues and build momentum towards better infrastructure - such as how cities can embrace smart technology solutions to improve quality of life, managing environmental risks with Artificial Intelligence and the potential for digitisation to improve electricity networks.

Eligibility Criteria

InfraChallenge is looking for forward-thinking innovators with a big idea and a passion to make it happen. Do digital solutions and the prospect of disrupting infrastructure-as-we-know-it get your brain ticking? Then this is your opportunity to enter a competition to create a tangible result for infrastructure. Finalists will be mentored by industry leaders and gain exposure on a global platform.

We’re looking for teams to apply who are experiencing issues, perhaps in their community, and who think they have a digital-driven idea that can solve them.

InfraChallenge is about unlocking digital ideas, solving big infrastructure issues, and bringing disruption to the industry to better prepare us for the future.
