The prestigious Maitland lecture returns with an opportunity to attend online or at our London headquarters. This years topic will focus on agriculture production and biodiversity.

The Institution of Structural Engineers is delighted to announce that the 2022 Maitland lecture will take place on Thursday 20 July. 

The Maitland lecture is an opportunity to hear a fascinating presentation on a cutting-edge topic that provides a different viewpoint and perspective on issues that are high on a structural engineer’s agenda.

We are delighted to announce that our guest speaker is Dr Alastair Leake, Head of the Allerton Project, the Game & Wildlife Conservation Trust. Dr Leake will speak about his work in agriculture developing holistic approaches to production that maximise yields and biodiversity whilst minimising environmental impacts.

A drinks and canape reception will follow the lecture for those attending in-person.

 

Annual General Meeting

The Institution’s AGM 2022 will take place prior to the lecture. Find out more about the AGM and register to attend or participate online.
