Request for Proposals: Facilitation of two-day in-person scoping workshop
The purpose of this commission is to secure a supplier to provide preparation support, lead facilitation, and informed outputs from the delivery of an in-person workshop, convened by the Royal Academy of Engineering (RAEng) and the National Academy of Technologies France (NATF). The overarching objective of this workshop is to pinpoint opportunities for a RAEng- NATF bilateral activity in 2024/5. The primary focus will be to explore opportunities in the context of two pre-selected themes: engineering systems approaches to net zero, and engineering education and skills. The workshop will convene approximately twelve participants drawn from the fellowships and networks of RAEng and NATF who have relevant expertise in the fields of interest. The workshop will take place in Prince Philip House, Carlton House Terrace, London,
with full logistical support provided by RAEng staff.
We are looking for a supplier who can bring a creative approach to workshop facilitation and content capture to generate novel insight on opportunities for further partnership, including a plan or vision of what the academies should focus on in the next 3-5 years.
The full scope of the workshop, project deliverables and the facilitation required during the two days is outlined in the following section.
