In October 2023, the global engineering community will meet in Prague to discuss our contribution to the “great transformation” through UN SDGs !
The Czech Association of Scientific and Technical Societies (CSVTS) in collaboration with WFEO will hold the 7th World Engineers Convention WEC 2023 and the WFEO General Assembly in Prague, the capital of the Czech Republic, in October 2023.
The theme of WEC 2023 “Engineering for life: Breakthrough Technologies and Capacity Development Focused on UN SDGs” responds to current planetary challenges and reflects the main goal which is to explore and find how high-tech, as well as low-tech innovations, artificial intelligence and a transdisciplinary approach, can ensure environmental sustainability and assure a safer, fairer, more efficient, better, healthy and peaceful future.
The goal of the Convention is the meeting of participants to get acquainted with professional competences of engineers, up-to-date news of industry and research from around the world and readiness for our global society to solve current and future problems for the sustainable development of human civilization, contained in the eight UN sustainable development goals which need to be reached by 2030.
The organizers of WEC 2023 would like to invite engineers, academics, global thought leaders, technical specialists, professional and engineering association members, educators, students, industry influencers and professionals from other fields from all over the world to share their latest knowledge, experience, research, suggestions and visions which would present the latest achievements of the engineering art at this magnificent engineering event.
