The ECFG will be holding their inaugural Early Careers Symposium this summer. The symposium is spread over two days and is specifically aimed at engineers and scientists* who are in the early stages of their careers in any disciplines within the defence weapons and explosives industry.

Topics that will be touched upon include: UK defence capability; communication and personal effectiveness; technical presentations; emerging technologies; protection, detection and analysis.

The symposium will take place on 7 & 8 July at ISSEE, Heythrop Park, Enstone, Chipping Norton, Oxfordshire OX7 5UE.

The total cost for these two days, which includes full use of the conference facilities, food, drink, accommodation, a networking reception and evening dinner, is £300.00 per person.

For the organisation and hosting of this event, the IExpE has chosen to use the new ISSEE Conferencing and Seminars service, which is being launched during the summer months.

Holli Kimble, Chairman of the Early Careers Focus Group, says about the partnership with ISSEE: “It is a great opportunity to hold the first Early Careers Symposium at ISSEE’s new home at Heythrop Park. The new location has excellent facilities and is very accessible making it an ideal venue to host delegates from all around the UK. We recognised very early on that ISSEE’s strong reputation for working with commercial and public organisations would deliver the right level of support for our event.”

Gordon Storey, CEO for ISSEE adds: ”We are very pleased to be hosting the Early Careers Symposium this year. It coincides with the launch of our new ISSEE Conferences and Seminars service which is specifically targeted to organisations in the Explosives and Security industry. There couldn’t be a better fit!”

Sponsorship packages for the symposium are still available; please contact the organisers for further details via this email address.
