EFCA launches 2020 edition of the ‘Future Trends in the Consulting Engineering Industry’

We are ready to make our choices on the road to becoming a “4.0 Industry”

The future is inevitable. The only constant is change and the rate of that change is increasing uncontrollably, or so all thought. But we never lived in such extraordinary times and never faced these exceptional levels of global uncertainty. The impact of the coronavirus outbreak will be with us for some time to come and it will have significant effects on our economies, businesses, ways of working, societies and way of life.


The 2018 Future Trends booklet looked at new “disruptive” technologies and revolutionary processes, and identified potential exponential models of evolution in the consulting engineering sector.


The 2019 edition focused on innovative, anticipatory strategies in new management models and how to make decisions by analysing data and information using these powerful new tools together with cognitive collaboration.


The 2020 booklet looks into the right mix of practical aspects and applications in these innovations within our specific field. It looks at the right combinations of technologies and techniques to adopt with various clients in different markets, taking into account the size of the company.


‘Along with the world, the industry as we know it is changing. It may not be the future the European AEC Community was expecting. It may not be the future it has prepared for. However, the European engineering consulting industry must change with it’, says Maurizio Boi, lead author of the booklet.
