Over 400 people attended the conference from over 40 countries, including Academies and professional engineering institutions from countries in Africa. The day prior to the conference the Academy hosted a Young Engineers Day, with students from around the world working in teams to come up with an engineering innovation to solve one of the UN SDGs.

  • The academy has been selected as a delivery partner for the UK Government “Global Challenges Research Fund (GCRF)”, a £1.5 billion fund launched in 2016 to support cutting-edge research that addresses the challenges faced by developing countries. The RAEng has £3 million per year to spend over the next four years, funding five programmes, including Africa Catalyst, a programme to support the development of Professional Engineering Institutions across Africa.
