Dr Juliano Denicol is the Director of the Megaproject Delivery Centre at University College London (UCL) and Global Head of the Megaprojects Special Interest Group (SIG) at the International Project Management Association (IPMA). As Global Head of the IPMA Megaprojects SIG, Juliano coordinates a global platform with more than 70 countries to advance our understanding of megaproject delivery. Before joining UCL, Juliano has worked as a supply chain management consultant at High Speed 2, the largest infrastructure project in Europe, and advisor to the European Commission on public procurement policies. Juliano’s work on megaprojects has been regarded of high global impact receiving multiple research awards, including the prestigious 2022 Project Management Research Paper of the Year Award from the Association for Project Management (APM). Previous research included several iconic UK megaprojects: High Speed 1, Heathrow Airport Terminal 5, London 2012 Olympics, Crossrail, Thames Tideway Tunnel, and High Speed 2. Juliano has led the publication of two large-scale reviews of major and megaprojects: 1. A systematic literature review of megaproject performance for PMI, where 6.007 papers were analysed to identify 18 causes of poor performance and 54 solutions. 2. The Compendium of Large Infrastructure Projects for the European Commission, analysing the procurement procedures in over 80 large infrastructure projects across the European Union from 2008 to 2018.
