Frontiers of Engineering Symposium
On 31 August – 3 September, the first EU-US Frontiers of Engineering took place at Jesus College, Cambridge.
Sixty of the most promising engineers under the age of 40 from the EU and the US met for an intensive three day symposium on developments at the cutting edge of engineering technology. The event was intended to facilitate international and cross-disciplinary research collaboration, promote the transfer of new techniques and approaches across disparate engineering fields, and encourage the creation of a transatlantic network of world-class engineers.
Four key engineering areas were selected for discussion: Bio-Inspired Engineering, Materials Ecology, Augmented Reality and Signal Processing.
The Symposium was organised by the US National Academy of Engineering (NAE) and The Royal Academy of Engineering, on behalf of the umbrella organisation of European engineering Academies, Euro-CASE. Among the event sponsors were several successful UK engineering companies, including Autonomy, ARM and Yorkshire Nanofactory. The Academy is also grateful to Professor Robert Mair CBE FREng FRS and to Professor Roberto Cipolla FREng for their personal support of the event.
