The eighth Royal Academy of Engineering Frontiers of Engineering for Development symposium will take place in Madagascar from 27-29 November, with participants arriving for the evening of 26 November for a welcome dinner and networking event. It will be the second symposium under the overarching theme 'From Recovery to Resilience'.

The goal of the two-and-a-half day symposium is to introduce outstanding researchers and innovators working in the international development field (aproximately 0-20 years post-doc, or equivalent experience in industry) to each other, and through this interaction facilitate collaboration in engineering for development, the transfer of new techniques and approaches across disciplinary boundaries and the establishment of contacts among the next generation of engineering leaders and beyond.
The event will be made up of three multidisciplinary and interactive workshop-style sessions that explore the overall theme of 'From feeding people to nourishing people'. Participants are obliged to attend every session to maximise the opportunity to make new contacts and build collaborative relationships.
The workshop will be centered around three sub-themes which will be announced shortly.
To ensure there is a balance of formal and informal networking opportunities, social activities are organised.
The event chairs will be announced shortly.
