Engineering with Impact: Find out more about the GEDC Industry Forum 2020

The Industry Forum is a unique, creative and highly interactive initiative created by Petrus Communications in partnership with the Global Engineering Deans Council (GEDC). Each edition of the Industry Forum brings together leading engineering and technology employers and deans from around the world for dialogue, to network and to share knowledge and good practice.

The 3 events to-date have gathered senior delegates from 28 countries across 6 regions. Based on feedback, over 90% leave satisfied, inspired and looking forward to attending future events.

The next Industry Forum will take place from the 6th to 8th of July 2020 at Niagara-on-the-Lake, Canada. Hosted by the Faculty of Engineering at McMaster University, the invitation-only, highly interactive event will build on the themes and initiatives developed to-date, tackling topics such as socially conscious engineering, diversity and open innovation with particular focus on the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). An expert panel and a youth panel will cover embedding sustainability, and an inspirational session on rebuilding trust in technology completes the core programme.

Why attend?

Inspire and be inspired – The right balance of input and group work ensures we hear from global experts, while highly innovative sessions designed to facilitate peer-to-peer learning lead to the creation of valuable new ideas.

Go beyond networkingThe level of trust and engagement enabled by this unique format presents a remarkable opportunity for participants to go beyond networking, to build genuine, useful and lasting relationships.

‘This was an opportunity to recharge ideas and share new approaches. We learnt that whether Industry or Academia, we share the same enthusiasms and the same challenges: the drive always to improve the way we work and build a better society for all.’

– Andrew Hogg
Deputy Chairman,
Group Ethics Committee at Total
