Royal Academy of Engineering

“Engineering is a major driver in shaping Britain’s infrastructure and the health of the economy, but it also infuses almost every part of lives and therefore moulds the type of society and culture that we live in.  However, engineering and the engineers themselves are often hidden from public view; this is why the Royal Academy of Engineering is delighted to be partnering with this year’s Battle of Ideas festival to engage with a much wider audience and help raise awareness, debate and reflection on the impact of engineering on our world.”

Dr Lesley Paterson, Head of Communications and Engagement, Royal Academy of Engineering.
