Engineers Without Borders was initially founded in France in the 1980s (Ingénieurs Sans Frontières).
Since then the movement has developed in countries throughout the world. While each national organisation is independent in terms of governance, activities and funding we share the common principles of promoting sustainable development through engineering.
EWB-Ireland’s national committee was formed in January 2010 by a small multi-disciplinary group of engineers, we signed an MOU with EWB-UK in 2011 to promote knowledge sharing and opportunities, and registered as a company in 2013. The governance structure comprises a board of directors, a national committee and a local branch network within regional centres. All members are highly committed volunteers and currently the organisation is driven by a number of key individuals.
This coming Monday February 29th the Engineers Without Borders conference – Engineering a Better Future will be hosted at Engineers Ireland, Clyde Road, Ballsbridge, Dublin.
Proceedings start at 3pm and a line up of local and international speakers looks set to make it a very interesting event. If you would like to attend or know someone that may be interested you can register here firstname.lastname@example.org
