Alone we can do so little, together we can do so much - Helen Keller, 1888

A landmark event in the field of infrastructure resilience, ICONHIC2022 is landing in Athens  as an in-person event fostering dialogue among technical consultants, infrastructure contractors and operators, insurance and reinsurance firms, financial Institutions, International Organizations and infrastructure investors.  Participants will join a prestigious ensemble of world-class experts from numerous industries in a 3-day meeting featuring panel discussions, keynote and theme lectures, numerous technical and special sessions as well as a rich social program encouraging networking and boosting interactions. In an era when climate change-induced risks are challenging the conventional approaches in the design, O&M, financing and delivery of infrastructure, the need for collaboration is more timely than ever.
