Partial Financial Sponsorships for Young Engineers

One of the challenges the Pulp and Paper Industry faces going forward is attracting and retaining new, young electrical engineering professionals to the industry. Recognizing this need, the IEEE Pulp and Paper Industry Committee (PPIC) has arranged with the IEEE Industrial Applications Society (IAS) to provide a limited number of partial financial sponsorships for young engineers to attend to the upcoming Annual Conference.

This provides a low cost way for young engineering professionals to experience this forum for the exchange of electrical applications technology relating to forest products based industries. This is a great way to meet other industry engineers, learn solutions to real mill needs, and network with senior professionals from the industry.
