Brunel International Lecture Series

The 14th series was launched in 2022 supported by the International Coalition for Sustainable Infrastructure (ICSI)

The lecture series is a prestige event hosted by ICE. It aims to inform and influence global engineering issues, and to strengthen links between ICE, other engineering institutions and the global engineering community.

About the lecture series

The 14th Brunel International Lecture Series is curated and produced with support from the International Coalition for Sustainable Infrastructure (ICSI).

Follow the series as it builds on the theme of resilience and sustainability in infrastructure development for the 2022-24 programme.

The individual lectures will focus on challenges, opportunities, engineering solutions, and best practice examples specific to each region.

The series will shine a spotlight on equitable, sustainable, and resilient infrastructure challenges around the world and showcase what engineers globally are doing to help address that challenge.

Mitigation and adaptation efforts are both necessary for tackling climate change impacts, however, the latter is often overshadowed by the former. It is important to tackle climate change impacts that are felt now, whilst preparing for the future with resilient infrastructure.

The lectures will provide a platform for dialogue with high-profile leaders across the globe while focusing on practical engineering issues in tackling climate change at the local level.

Brunel: the man who inspires

The Brunel International Lecture series was established in 1999 in memory of Isambard Kingdom Brunel (1806-1859), one of the world’s most respected pioneering engineers.
