Engineers Ireland, the professional membership body for engineers in Ireland, has launched a new Brexit Lecture Series which will explore the impact of Brexit on engineering, business and trade in Ireland and the UK.
Commencing today, Monday, 29 March, the four-part lecture series of free evening webinars will be of relevance not only to engineers and business leaders on both sides of the Irish Sea, but also to those with an interest in Brexit and the new trade reality.
The Brexit Lecture Series is a collaboration between Engineers Ireland’s Donegal Region, GB Region, North East Region, North West Region and Northern Region and forms part of Engineers Ireland’s National Recovery Initiative.
The first event in the series, hosted by Engineers Ireland’s North East region, will focus on the new EU-UK Trade and Cooperation Agreement (TCA) and Inter Trade Ireland Brexit Supports. Taking place online at 7:00pm this evening, Mary White, Head of NSAI Brexit Unit and Deirdre Maguire, Manager of Inter Trade Ireland’s Brexit Advisory Service will discuss the new EU-UK Trade and Cooperation Agreement and its impact on standards and conformity and outline the supports and advice available to business and individuals from Inter Trade Ireland.
Additional events in the series, taking place on a fortnightly basis, will concentrate on the Impact of Brexit and the Pandemic on Engineering in the North West, The Impact of Brexit on Cross Border Procurement and Supply Chains and Post Brexit Construction in Ireland and the UK.
