Date and Time:

Sunday, 4 October 2020

The Technical Papers Competition was the first of the HS2 Learning Legacy challenges and sought to capture technical excellence and learning from across the HS2 Programme. It was sponsored by the Chief Engineer and Phase One Engineering Director, supported by a Technical Review Panel. It will be an annual competition and the 2020 approved papers will be published in an ICE book and on the Learning Legacy website.

The HS2 family accepted the TPC 2020 challenge with gusto leading to the submission of 65 technical papers, involving 31 organisations within the HS2 Family – far exceeding expectations. All 65 papers were technically reviewed, moderated and of these, 12 were shortlisted across three categories and judged by industry experts.

Over 100 people joined the virtual awards to celebrate technical excellence and learning on the HS2 programme, the announcement of the winners and presentations by the authors of their technical papers. An overall winner was also announced.
