Château-Chalon

Monday 11th February 2019 – Wine & Vine dinner-lecture

The vineyards of Jura form one of the smallest wine-producing regions of France. Little-known nowadays – at least in Belgium – they have a very marked character. Adjacent to Burgundy, they distinguish themselves from other wine-producing regions by their inimitable specialties, at the top of which the yellow wine and the straw-coloured wine. Proud of their origins and particularisms, a new generation of wine-growers is currently bursting into the open the merits of the wines from this small region.

Jean-Pierre Raskin

Friday 22nd February 2019 – Luncheon-lecture

Under the title « L’industrie de la micro-nano-électronique dessine le monde de demain », the Prof. Dr. Eng. Jean-Pierre Raskin will explain how some technological limitations can be a source of inspiration and innovation, as for instance in the framework of what is called « connected objects », for the thin films used for the industrial coating of glass and steel. He will also show the limitations of such innovations – energy consumption, critical and sometimes toxic materials – and will insist on the necessity to teach young engineers that change of paradigm, which require a holistic approach.

Please find on our page « Archives », the list of our previous events, among which a large number of lecture-lunches and several international conferences ( presentations made during these conferences can be read and downloaded ).

SEII is also present on the European scene, essentially in the fields of engineering education ( higher education and continuing education ), of the recognition of engineers’ qualification and of their mobility and employability. Please find more information about that on our page « Description of our activities », and also a number of articles and reports related to that subject on our page « Articles ».

At last, SEII is in touch with other associations linked with the world of engineering and keeps up with their activities. Insofar as we are able to do it, we try to keep you informed about the events that they organize ( see below ).
