The journey of the Top 10 began with closure of the InfraChallenge applications in March 2021. From a competitive field representing more than 30 countries, the Top 20 teams were selected and completed a six-week mentoring program with InfraChallenge partners to build out their idea and pitch for a place in the Top 10.

Now, the InfraChallenge moves into the next phase of the competition, where the Top 10 teams will compete for the winning prize, to be announced at the InfraChallenge Final event in September 2021.

About InfraChallenge 2021

Delivered by the GI Hub, the annual InfraChallenge competition aims to create a more resilient and quality-focused infrastructure ecosystem for the future. This year, the competition is supported by the Italian G20 Presidency as part of its infrastructure agenda.

Infrastructure is one of the least technologically transformed sectors, with crucial components like construction ranking second to last in digitisation. Technologically enabled infrastructure has the potential to change the cities we live in and, more importantly, help achieve broader goals around sustainability, social cohesion, and inclusive economic growth.
