The Presidential Address, Portsmouth: From the First to the Third Industrial Revolution
April 30 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm| Free
Robert Taylor’s Presidential Address

We are now in an era where, although people are more dependent on technology, they understand it less and many people have no link with engineering or industry. With the increasing pace of change and technological sophistication, how can we ensure significant items and evidence can be collected and preserved?
