GSE Opportunities: Engineering in Policy Network - Systems Thinking Panel Discussion

Posted by: , Posted on: - Categories: GSE Opportunities

Please join us for our first Engineering in Policy Network (EPN) event on systems thinking, on Wednesday 26th May, 12:00 - 12:30. This will be a panel discussion with speakers from the Civil Service, the Royal Academy of Engineering and UCL followed by an audience-led Q&A. The panel will reflect on what it means to work at the intersection of engineering and policy and how thinking in systems is important and impactful in this space. We will explore how systems approaches relate to engineering in policy, before looking at what the panellists and their respective organisations are doing in this space to conclude.


We are delighted to welcome the following panellists:

  • Louise Dunsby – Deputy Director, Critical and Emerging Technology at the Cabinet Office. Louise is a Chartered Engineer and Policy Fellow of the Royal Academy of Engineering, you can find her bio here (please note the updated job title).
  • Dr Shabana Haque – Head of Policy, Royal Academy of Engineering.
