Stanford GPC Research Director Dr. Rajiv Sharma recently accepted an invitation to join the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) Future World Vision Core Committee. The Future World Vision Committee brings together leading academics, practitioners, government and non-government entities, and futurists to plan future scenarios and determine how these scenarios will impact the Engineering profession in the next ten, 25 and 50 years.
The Core Committee will be deciding on the drivers/trends, key uncertainties, and a matrix of outcomes that drives the future scenarios. These scenarios will then be developed visually with the assistance of the design firm, Experimental Design. Dr. Sharma will be drawing upon his multi-disciplinary work at the Global Projects Center which spans engineering, finance, economics and geography in contributing to the ASCE Future World Vision Core Committee.
