Present Content Working Party

The Present Content Working Party is responsible for assembling a suitably researched and compelling narrative based on the chemical engineer of the present (1970—2029). 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.
