Continued Professional Development Event

While the conference itself is excellent CPD, we will be hosting a bespoke training session 11:00 – 17:30 on 31 March before the start of the full conference. Sessions will focus on state-of-the-art approaches that engineers may use to mitigate/adapt to climate change. Instructors include (TBC):

Dr Phil Renforth (Heriot-Watt University) - Methods and monitoring for CO2 capture in alkaline wastes
Prof. Mike Winter (Winter Associates) - Reduce, Reuse, Recycle, Recover, Replace: Sustainability in a Material World
Paul Nowak (Atkins) - Maximising the use of onsite materials
Asa Soderberg/Stephanie Knowles (Stantec) - Sustainable Urban Drainage Systems

The CPD training can be booked during registration for an additional £100 onto the ticket price (with includes lunch and refreshments).

Field Trip

Following the conference delegates can join us on a short field trip which will depart immediately following the conference and return to Cambridge by 17:00. More details to follow. Tickets can be purchased during registration for an additional £45.
