Her Royal Highness The Princess Royal will visit next month’s 13th International Naval Engineering Conference and Exhibition (INEC 2016) in Bristol.
INEC 2016 is being held 26-28 April 2016 at The Passenger Shed at Brunel’s Old Station, Bristol. It is an Institute of Marine Engineering, Science and Technology (IMarEST) Learned Society event.
“We are delighted that Her Royal Highness, an honorary fellow of our Institute, will be attending INEC 2016,” says the Institute’s chief executive, David Loosley.
“As admiral chief commandant for Women in the Royal Navy we believe she will find the conference, with its theme ‘Engineering the Triple A Navy: Active, Adaptive, Affordable’ of particular interest.”
INEC provides a forum for professional engineers and technologists from across the world’s navies, defence industries and academic establishments to share the latest thinking and developments in warship and submarine design and operation.
The biennial INEC, which HRH The Princess Royal attended in 2010, has a long history. Over 300 delegates from 20 countries are expected.
The conference’s social programme includes a reception aboard Brunel’s SS Great Britain.
The Principal Sponsor of INEC 2016 is the Babcock International Group. Other sponsors include: BMT Defence Services, Rolls-Royce, QinetiQ, and GE’s Marine Solutions.
