This event has finished

Following a successful event in Düsseldorf in November, the British Consul-General in Munich, Paul Heardman, has kindly invited the IMechE Germany Group to organise a second meeting on the same theme at his residence in Munich will from 18:00 to 21:00 on Monday 6 October 2014. 

 As before, the title of the meeting is:


British and German perspectives on engineering innovation

and it is being arranged in association with UK Trade & Investment (UKTI) and the Verein Deutscher Ingenieure (VDI).  A first speaker proposed by the VDI will examine the factors influencing innovation in Germany, particularly within companies associated with the “Mittelstand”.  The perspective in the UK will then be presented by a speaker invited by UKTI. 

Returning to Munich for the second time in slightly more than a year, I am pleased to announce that outgoing IMechE President Professor Patrick Kniveton CEng FIMechE will bring the presentations to a close by providing an overview of the similarities and differences to the culture of engineering in Germany and the UK.  This will be followed by a brief panel discussion.

The event will conclude with a reception with refreshments during which time you will have the opportunity to meet all of the speakers as well as Raymond Hodgkinson CEng MIMechE, Germany Group Chair, and other members of the current committee, plus representatives from UKTI and VDI. 

In order to facilitate arrangements. please register your wish to attend by email to Dr Andy Storer (at GermanyViceChair@imechenetwork.org ) by Friday 12 September at the latest to ensure that we have accurate numbers for catering.  Formal invitations will then be sent to all those who have registered.
