THE 2022 GEDC INDUSTRY FORUM

Developing the next generation of engineering experts and leaders

BE PART OF THE DIALOGUE IN 2022!

At previous GEDC Industry Forum events, engineering and technology leaders from the private sector and education gathered to work together to develop the engineering leaders, experts and innovators of the future. To build on these exchanges in 2022 we’re holding an innovative combination of online webinars and small group seminars to explore key ideas in greater depth with our global audience. These activities will culminate in a dedicated in-person workshop and networking event alongside the 2022 WEEF-GEDC conference taking place in Cape Town, South Africa from 28th November to 1st December 2022.

We are grateful to our partners for their support which has enabled this series to take place.
