New IES community for marine science professionals - Initial meeting
As part of our approach at the IES to support our members working in particular specialisms we establish communities, sub-groups within our membership, to provide tailored CPD, support and guidance to better facilitate engagement with and between our members.
Marine science is an area that has grown within our membership in recent months, to echo this and the increasing engagement with this sector through support of the 2018 World Environment Day #BeatPlasticPollution campaign, widespread popularity for BBC documentary, Blue Planet II, and emerging new policy on sustainable fisheries, we are establishing a community to further advance this specialism and support marine scientists working in the sector.
To hear your ideas for this community, discuss current issues and areas of development within the sector and more specifically, how the IES may fit into the wider landscape of this specialism we will be hosting a meeting at the IES offices (6-8 Great Eastern Street, EC2A 3NT) on Thursday 18th July, from 11:00 -13.00, followed by a networking sandwich lunch.
This will be a chance to feed in your ideas, get involved in working groups to deliver exciting new projects, and meet some of your fellow professionals working in the field.
We encourage both members and non-members working in this profession to attend.
Free for both members and non-members to attend
