Event description

Description

CHAIN London 2020 is a free event for early-career engineers taking place in London on the 28 February 2020. First started in 2016, CHAIN is a joint initiative organised by the young member representatives of several professional engineering institutions, aiming to provide links between disciplines across the engineering industry and build a community for early-career engineers.

As we enter the 2020s, the theme of this event is Engineering The New Decade, taking a closer look at how innovation across the engineering industry will help us to solve some of the key challenges facing society in the 2020s and beyond. The programme will include a series of engaging talks delivered by experts in their field, a panel discussion and an interactive workshop focussing on inter-discipline collaboration. The day will also close with a networking event attended by representatives from a range of professional engineering institutions and organisations: your chance to get the inside track on opportunities to boost your career and learn more about the wider engineering industry.
