Young CEDA has great plans for CEDA Dredging Days 2015

Free registrations to motivated students

Events - Dredging Days 2015 - Student programme // cedadredgingdays-studentprogram.png (1,084 K)Young CEDA’s Student Programme at CEDA Dredging Days is a highly successful initiative that enables promising students to attend the conference and exhibition. Under this programme CEDA offers a considerable number of free registrations to graduate and post-graduate students for this year's conference and exhibition (5-6 November 2015, Rotterdam, the Netherlands). They are granted to students who have shown great affinity with dredging technology within their studies.

The free registrations are organised and co-ordinated by Young CEDA who will contact around 15 European universities and institutions of higher professional education will be offered up to three each free registrations each. 

A platform to expose ideas and get immediate feedback

Young CEDA will be hosting a session of pitch talks with the aim of creating a dynamic series of up to seven succinct presentations aligned with the overall theme of the conference.
The pitch talks will provide students and young professionals with a platform on which to present their ongoing work, expose their ideas to a broad expert audience, and get immediate feedback and inspiration. Young people, in particular students, rarely get the chance to submit a full paper to their peers at professional conferences like CEDA Dredging Days. This event has been organised specifically to give them the opportunity to receive peer input into their ongoing projects.

Young CEDA is also about fun

As always, the social events will be an important part of the Young CEDA programme during Dredging Days 2015. They help to ensure that students and young professionals, attending the conference, have plenty of opportunities to meet their peers and spend some relaxed time with each other. A networking event for students and young professionals is scheduled for Wednesday, 4 November, as an icebreaker for the conference. There will also be a Young CEDA lunch before the pitch talks session on Friday. More details will be announced later.
