Engineers 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 on Monday, 29 March, the four-part lecture series of free evening events 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. 

Engineers Ireland’s members are encouraged to register for the free series of events which take place from March – May 2021. Forthcoming events scheduled as part of the series include:
