Over 90 participants from 27 countries across 6 continents gathered both online and in Dresden, Germany to reflect together on lessons learned both collectively and individually over the challenging past 18 months. We explored how universities, companies and our stakeholders can work better together to prepare for and pre-empt the global challenges that lie ahead focusing on 8 key themes centred around ‘Agile engineering education: Developing the next generation of engineering innovators, experts and leaders for our ever-evolving world’
