The first day of the conference will bring national academies of engineering from around the world together with international development stakeholders to discuss the global importance of engineering for international development.

The second day of the conference will complement this high-level message of day one with practical guidance on how to have impact as an engineering academy.

It will leverage the expertise available within the CAETS network and the broader engineering profession to share best practice, guidance and support on the day-to-day operation of academies that will be as much of interest to established CAETS members as it will to nascent and emerging academies and institutions from across the developing world.
