Engineering Scotland’s June Innovation Lecture 2022 will be held on Monday 6th June online via zoom from 6pm, and will be delivered by Professor Gordon Masterton, Chair of Future Infrastructure, University of Edinburgh.
The MacRobert Award is the premier award for engineering innovation in the UK. In 2019 it marked its 50th Anniversary Year of celebrating innovative engineering which benefit society and have been commercially successful. It is administered by the Royal Academy of Engineering and Gordon has served as a judge for two terms (2013-16 and 2019-22). He has visited over thirty applicants, and been involved in the selection process for 8 years. Gordon will review the origins of the Award, the role of the MacRobert Trust, the Worshipful Company of Engineers, and the Royal Academy of Engineering, and provide an overview of a selection of past winners from 1969 to the present day. Professor Masterton will provide insights into the qualities and characteristics of what makes a MacRobert Award winner and how British engineering has evolved through the period.
