The ICE has created a special ‘online community’ for its members to share knowledge, opinions and advice on how the engineering industry will be impacted by last month’s spending review and the subsequent National Infrastructure Plan (NIP).
The spending review and the NIP set out a range of challenges and opportunities for the civil engineering industry, both of which will impact on the industry in the coming years.
Have your say
The ICE is inviting members to have their say - to help identify the issues civil engineers will have to address in order to deal with these challenges and opportunities, and share views on how the Institution can build further on the government’s commitment to infrastructure investment.
“Infrastructure is increasingly being seen by government as key priority area, therefore the ICE must keep up this momentum, help shape the direction of the government’s work and continue to push the importance of a long-term vision for infrastructure,” said ICE President Peter Hansford.
“But input from our membership is vital in order for us to ensure our work on this is progressing in the right direction. This new online community function provides members with an excellent channel to share their views and ideas and ensure that as members of the Institution, their voices are heard.
“We hope to see ICE members and other interested parties alike getting involved with the debate.”
