World Engineers´ Convention 2011 in Swiss (WEC 2011)
September 2011 will see Geneva become the key international venue for engineers. The World Engineers' Convention 2011 (WEC 2011) seeks to encourage innovative engineering aimed at solving the problem of globally sustainable use of energy.
How can we provide sufficient energy for everyone around the globe? How can we meet the energy needs of the world's population fairly? How can we prevent conflicts over energy? These are just a few of the burning issues to be addressed by WEC 2011.
Engineers from all over the world will get together in Geneva from 4-9 September 2011. The title of the convention, Engineers Power the World – Facing the Global Energy Challenge, reflects its focus on energy as one of the greatest challenges of the 21st century. It will promote sustainable use and identify future-proof solutions in the areas of mobility and transport, urban development and construction, energy conversion, logistics, renewable energy and storage, and rational end use and large consumers.
