About OMEGA Centre
Based at the Bartlett School of Planning (BSP) at University College London (UCL), The OMEGA Centre for Mega Infrastructure and Development comprises a small team of Research Fellows and Assistants supported by an international network of partner academics, researchers and professionals engaged in various aspects of the planning, appraisal and delivery of mega projects world-wide. Formerly known as a Centre for Mega Projects in Transport and Development, the scope of the centre was expanded, after the completion of the OMEGA
3 Project, to include infrastructure projects in general. The centre moved beyond land-based transport infrastructure projects (or rather programmes of projects) but is still focusing on projects costing in excess of US$ 1 billion (at 1990 prices) frequently with political high profile and perceived as critical to the success of major urban, metropolitan, regional and/or national and trans-national development.
