Smart Cities - Engineering the Future
Next in our "Sustainability and Efficiency" season was our lecture on "smart cities". Proving the high level of interested in this season's theme, this event was almost a sell-out.
Professor Dr Uwe Krueger, Chief Executive of Atkins, highlighted the fact that within the next 40 years, 75% of the world's population will be living in cities. That poses enormous challenges from energy and transportation, to the delivery of food supplies.

Sustainability & Efficiency Panel Discussion - video now available
For the 2013 - 2014 lecture season, the Central London segment of this network introduced a theme, choosing "Sustainablity and Efficiency" as being one which is relevant across all disciplines and increasingly topical. We kicked off the season with a panel discussion, part of the Engineers' Question Time series, and what a way to start the year!
Chaired by Nigel Fine, our high profile panel brought together speakers from R&D, academia, investment and manufacturing, who fielded a range of thought-provoking questions. The subjects ranged from energy and carbon saving to retail and consumers. The lively and long-lasting discussions after the event were testament to the level of interest in this theme, and we are delighted that a recording of the event is now available online:
