In-person workshop during the WEEF & GEDC conference
Cape Town, South Africa | Thursday 1st December 2022
Since 2017, the GEDC Industry Forum has brought together leaders from the private sector, education and stakeholder organisations to develop the engineering leaders, experts and innovators of the future. The collaborative and creative format presents an opportunity to leverage collective knowledge and experience while developing an influential and meaningful dialogue. As we continue to adapt and respond to the ongoing disruption and transformation of industry, education and society we have a tremendous amount to learn from and share with each other. Our mission is to enable university-industry collaboration to address significant global challenges drawing on the four core themes below to do so.
Participants in this invitation only, highly interactive event, come from a wide range of engineering and technology specialisations across education and the private sector; from FTSE 100 leaders to dynamic tech start-ups. Typical participants include President, Vice-Rector, Dean and Director of Education; R&D or HR Director, CEO, Head of Engineering, Innovation or Technology.
The GEDC Industry Forum registration fee of €150 covers in-person participation in the facilitated design workshop, research and materials, as well as catering and networking activities on December 1st. We’re excited to be hosted for the evening reception by the Cape Town based world-class learning company Construct in their offices overlooking Table Mountain.
On Thursday 1st December 2022,this interactive in-person workshop will build on the online discussions that have taken place earlier in the year as well as topics discussed during the WEEF& GEDC conference.
