Spinnaker through windowThe importance of engineering to the world is often overlooked.  It is engineering in all of its many and varied forms that enables the world to work.  We engineers are our own worst enemies – too busy delivering solutions to talk about them !”   Paul Westbury FREng, CBE, Chief Executive, Buro Happold.

As we prepare for the next CSR and enter the final furlong in our preparations for the Research Excellence Framework, which now seeks to measure the impact of what we do, Congress2013 will take as its theme, how engineering in higher education “ticks all of the impact boxes” and contributes in diverse ways to the future success of UKPlc.  There will be speakers from the funding councils, media, industry and senior academics plus workshops offering the opportunity to share best practice in writing impact case studies, university-industry collaboration, delivering innovation in the curriculum and others on understanding the future finances of high cost subjects and managing change.

Professor Jim Al-Khalili, Theoretical Physicist, Chair in the Public Engagement in Science and presenter of BBC’s The Life Scientific will deliver the Public Lecture, Kate Bellingham, great STEM ambassador and former presenter of Tomorrow’s World will be interviewing Paul Westbury FREng CBE, Chief Executive of Buro Happold and Andrew Miller MP, Chair of the Parliamentary and Scientific Committee will address the pre dinner reception. The Congress Dinner will be held in Portsmouth’s spectacular Spinnaker Tower overlooking the harbour.
