Special Pitch Session
The fib Symposium 2021 includes activities organized by and for young engineers.
The fib Young Member’s Group was established in Madrid in 2017 and, since then, fib Symposia have included YMG sessions and social activities that gather young professionals and students spread across the globe. The Symposium in Lisbon is no exception. A workshop will take place on the Sunday before the event (the 13th of June), with social activities, discussions, work meetings and networking planned by the YMG and open for any interested young engineer. The planning of the workshop is underway and details will be announced soon.
On Wednesday the 16th June, from 12:45 to 14:15 CEST, the last day of the Symposium, a Special Pitch Session will take place. Young Engineers attending the Symposium are invited to present concepts, ideas and challenges related to their work, in just 3 minutes, to a very distinguished panel:

• Tor-Ole Olsen, Past President of the fib;
• Agnieska Bigaj-van Vliet, fib Presidium member;
• Josée Bastien - fib Presidium Member;
