PJ Rudden, Chartered Engineer, President of Engineers Ireland presents his Presidential Address, titled 'Building a Sustainable Recovery.
 
The address focuses on what changes are required to our national educational and spatial planning systems to drive a more sustainable recovery in job creation in resource efficiency and environmental terms. This requires that engineers take a holistic integrated approach to future infrastructural policy and developments in transport, water, energy, waste and communications. We also have to highlight the very positive contribution that ongoing innovation in energy, biomedical, pharmaceutical and ICT engineering is making to job creation and economic recovery.
