Low-income and newly-industrialised countries require huge amounts of investment in infrastructure upgrades and new technologies in order to accommodate their increasing populations and to support their growing economies. However, the full impact of these large-scale investments cannot be reached if countries do not also develop the capability and capacity to maintain and operate such infrastructure. A lack of investment here can result in potentially serious consequences for the safety of life and property.
Engineering X, a collaboration between the Academy and Lloyd’s Register Foundation, has launched the Engineering Skills where they are Most Needed (ESMN) Mission (£5 million over 5 years) which seeks to support the delivery of skills and education programmes that will lead to development of much needed engineering skills capacity, enhanced safety standards, and infrastructure that remains safe and fit for purpose.
- To deliver skills and education programmes that enhance engineering capacity, safety standards, and infrastructure that remains safe and fit for purpose
- To develop the existing engineering workforce skills capacity
- To bring the engineering community together in order to identify where and how the most impactful and sustainable interventions
