Founded in 1968, WFEO brings together national engineering organisations from over 90 nations and represents 15M engineers. The ICE is UK national member to the WFEO.
In December last year the ICE was represented at WFEO’s General Assembly meetings in Brazil. The WFEO meetings covered globally significant topics including environmental impact, the role of women in the industry and the wider issues in the energy arena. Participating at the meetings provided excellent opportunities for the ICE to discuss and progress its international operations and strategy, particularly in the areas of international development and capacity building.
The WFEO awards will be presented at this year’s General Assembly in Kuwait in November.
As a WFEO national member the ICE can only submit one or two nominations to each of the awards. If you would like to suggest an individual or team for one of the awards please send details to Ruth Dennett at email@example.com before 30 June.
