“The UK has one of the world’s most influential, innovative and dynamic electronics and embedded software industries, with a skills base and global influence envied by many,” says Clive.
“This should be celebrated – which is where our EW BrightSparks programme comes in. Electronics Weekly wants to highlight the achievements of the most talented young people in the electronics world, to inspire and encourage new entrants to our industry.”
“This is particularly important in the context of the well-publicised skills gap and the efforts of the UK government and other organisations to encourage greater take-up in schools and universities of science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM) and engineering-related subjects.
“The BrightSparks programme for 2018 therefore needs you. We are looking for engineers under the age of 30 who are working or studying in the UK – those who are still in the early stages of their electronics careers and who will go on to shape the UK industry in years to come.”
“You can nominate yourself, or a colleague. We want to know what you’re working on now.”
