Royal Academy of Engineering Core - Frontiers of Engineering for Development
Frontiers of Engineering for Development is a series of interdisciplinary symposia that facilitates national and international collaboration to tackle global development challenges. The event brings together a select group of around 60 emerging UK and global engineering and international development leaders from industry and academia to discuss pioneering technical work and cutting-edge research for international development from a diversity of engineering fields. Seed funding is available to progress some of the best ideas coming out of the event. COVID-19
The goal of the two-and-a-half day symposia is to introduce these outstanding engineers and international development workers (0-20 years post-doc, or equivalent experience in industry) to each other, and through this interaction facilitate collaboration in engineering for development, the transfer of new techniques and approaches across disciplinary boundaries and the establishment of contacts among the next generation of engineering leaders and beyond. We intend that participants will establish networks that will have a lasting impact throughout their careers. In order to encourage this, at the end of each symposium participants will have the opportunity to apply for seed funding to help build on collaborative partnerships established at the event.
