Interdisciplinary symposia that facilitates national and international collaboration to tackle global development challenges. The event brings together a selected group of around 60 emerging UK and global engineering and international development leaders from industry and other disciplines in academia to discuss pioneering technical work and cutting-edge research for international development from a diversity of engineering fields. We intend that participants will establish networks that will have a lasting impact throughout their careers.
The goal of the two-and-a-half day symposia is to introduce outstanding academics and international development workers to each other, and through this interaction facilitate: Collaboration in engineering for development; The transfer of new techniques and approaches across disciplinary boundaries; The establishment of contacts among the next generation of engineering leaders and beyond.
