Notice of the essay competition for selection of candidates to participate in the IEC 2013 Young Professionals’ Programme in New Delhi, October 2013.

Participate in the IEC 2013 Young Professionals programme.  Submit an essay of not more than 5 pages on the topic “Where is there a standards gap” and you could be selected by the SANC to attend this prestigious meeting in October 2013.

Note that while the competition can only result in two, maybe three successful candidates, with one potential sponsored by the SAIEE, it is intended that the competition will be used as a springboard to establish a local Young professionals’ programme to help develop the local pool of next generation  standardization practitioners. All those who submit entries will thus already be identified to participate in the local programme.

Interested readers can obtain further detail on the IEC Young Professional Workshop 2013 and the Essay Competition in the attached brochure (flyer) which is available below.

Please note that essays are to be submitted to the National Committee Secretary, paul.johnson@sabs.co.za by 15 March 2013.

PLEASE NOTE THIS COMPETITION IS ONLY OPEN TO YOUNG PROFESSIONALS RESIDENT IN SOUTH AFRICA
