In the era of massive globalization and extensive technological progress, growing academic attention has been given to the practices related to the management of Large Engineering Projects (LEPs), here intendedas large-scale, complex ventures that typically cost US"1 billion or more, take many years to develop and build, involve multiple public and private stakeholders, are transformational, and impact millions of people[Flyvbjerg, 2014].
By assuming this point of view, it is safe to say that megaprojects somehow contribute in shaping society' s by addressing its needs and potentially facilitating public conditions in specific matters.
These multi-actor and multi- technology constellations [Lehtinen, Peltokorpi & Artto, 2018] are increasing in both number and magnitude, with the peculiarity of developing their own identity in terms of methodologies, practices, purposes, complexity of stakeholders and overall impact.
Therefore, it is easier and easier to imagine megaprojects as not just traditional projects on a larger scale. [Flyvbjerg, 2014].
To investigate the multiple aspect of LEPs, Authors established the MeRIT (Megaproject Research Interdisciplinary Team) aiming to investigate LEPs from different points of view and with the contribution of different disciplines: engineering, economics, business organization, human resource management, jurisprudence, sociology, sustainability, complexity, etc..
This work represent the first output of this interdisciplinary cooperation between members of MeRIT, aspiring to embrace the intrinsic and unavoidable complexity of Large Engineering Projects

11.15 Lectio Magistralis - Nuno Gil (Manchester Alliance Business School) - Megaprojects: Why Purpose Matters
In this presentation, Nuno will argue that understanding the reasons as to why capital-intensive projects so-called megaprojects behave the way they do requires seeing their purpose as social artefacts that are designed by people to create economic and social value. A view of megaprojects that accounts for stakeholder value appropriation and thus for the production of social gains, Nuno will claim, matters to understand why slippages in performance targets are the norm, and why that is a lesser problem. Specifically, a wider view of the purpose of megaprojects enables to better manage increasing pressure on megaprojects to consider societal and environmental expectations that go beyond law, and thus to play a role as moral actors as a condition to gain consent. Further, an understanding of the wider purpose of a megaproject gives us a compass to set project organizational boundaries (who is in and who is out), and negotiate who pays what, and who gets what. Nuno will conclude by discussing the profound implications that a wider view of the purpose of a megaproject (why are we doing this?) brings to project management practice.
