Future Content Working Party

The Future Content Working Party is responsible for assembling a suitably researched and compelling narrative based on the chemical engineer of the future (2030—2100). In building the content, input and engagement with membership and wider stakeholders is important (eg employers, universities, policy makers and others as identified). 

This working party works closely with the Services Working Party and the Platforms and Funding Working Party to ensure that their narrative is taken forward and told appropriately.

  • experience coordinating inputs and communicating opportunities to a broad range of stakeholders (including third parties).

The Future Content Working Party consists of a number of members, plus a Chair. The Chair reports into the IChemE100 Steering Committee.

Membership of an IChemE working party is an unpaid, voluntary role.
