Platforms and Funding Working Party

The Platforms and Funding Working Party is responsible for identifying, developing and costing platforms to deliver the services. It works closely with the Services Working Party, and management, to identify and agree upon a range of appropriate platforms to host the IChemE100 outputs and messages.

Platforms include, but are not limited to: websites, intranets, podcasts, blogs, social media, emails, webinars, publications (The Chemical Engineer), events (conferences, celebratory dinners, university-hosted lecture series, physical meetings and exhibitions), print media (newspapers and magazines) and broadcast media (television and radio).
