Meet the #EYEC2024 Team!

We’re thrilled to introduce the brilliant minds behind the scenes, the heartbeat of the 12th European Young Engineers Conference! 🎉These remarkable individuals have poured their dedication and expertise into making this year’s conference an unforgettable experience for all.

Let’s give a round of applause for these amazing people who are taking #EYEC2024 to new heights! 🚀 Can’t wait to see you all there!

Welcome The James Dyson Award!

📢 We are thrilled to unveil another patron for the 12th edition of EYEC, with the generous support of the James Dyson Award! 

The James Dyson Award is an international design award that celebrates, encourages and inspires the next generation of design engineers. It’s open to current and recent design engineering students, and is run by the James Dyson Foundation, James Dyson’s charitable trust, as part of its mission to get young people excited about design engineering.  

The James Dyson Award is your chance to make a name for yourself as an inventor. As well as winning a significant cash prize, you could generate media exposure to kick-start your career, earn the esteem of your peers – and perhaps gain the confidence to launch your own business. Entering is simple.  

The brief is broad. We’re looking for designers who think differently, to create products that work better.  

Engineers who follow an iterative design process. The judges – and James Dyson especially – are drawn to designs that employ clever yet simple engineering principles and address clear problems.  

As well as proving your project’s technical viability, we’d also love to see that it’s commercially viable, too – so include any research you’ve done into manufacturing costs and retail prices.  

This year the James Dyson will also looking for entries that address
a sustainability issue, or have been designed, sourced or manufactured sustainably. Find out how to enter   

“Young design engineers have the ability to develop tangible technologies that can change lives. The James Dyson Award rewards those who have the persistence and tenacity to develop their ideas.” -  James Dyson
