INWES Celebrating 100 Years of Women in Engineering

Earlier this month INWES celebrated a centenary of Women in Engineering. 

This event was organised by Scottish Engineering and INWES member volunteers; hosted by Heriot-Watt University; supported by EquateScotland; the Women in Technology Initiative at the University of California, Berkeley; Leonardo; ID Rethinking Waste Initiative and with the participation of  the European Platform of Women Scientists (EPWS).

The successful 2 day event and conference dinner engaged in thought provoking discussions about Artificial Intelligence, the benefits, ethical and privacy considerations and included a tour of the new Global Research Innovation and Discovery (GRID) Centre where we got to try some VR and AR systems that are under development there
