IGPSC Congress, The Engineering of Progress

Last updated:

As every year, the company Advantage Aquitaine offers its Annual Congress IGPSC – include Engineering Large Projects and Complex Systems – to be held on June 24 and 25 in Arcachon, in the heart of the Palais des Congrès. The aim, as every year, is to encourage meetings between professionals in order to exchange and share their experiences around common topics.

A 14th edition looking to the future

Since its inception in 2006, the IGPSC Congress has been dedicated to addressing common issues around conferences and exchanges. For its 14th edition, the Congress is turning to renewable energy, space or even human, so that participants have ways to build the world of tomorrow. Advantage Aquitaine is aimed through the IGPSC at engineers, managers, project managers, business leaders, business leaders but also academics and researchers, all decision makers who can have an impact in shaping a more responsible world. Each year, the Congress attracts more than 100 participants who come to attend the various conferences and presentations in order to obtain innovative solutions and to learn from the experience and advice of the speakers. During the two days dedicated to the event, participants have the opportunity to participate in conferences on various topics: Digital, change management, alternative energies and climate, major projects, issues related to space but also to humans. In addition to the lectures, participants also participate in this year’s traditional Gala Dinner at the Terraces du Port in Arcachon, but also a ride in Pinasse, the emblematic boat of the Arcachon Basin, with an oyster tasting in a unique setting.

As every year, the IGPSC Congress, chaired by Jean-Pierre RAPIN, offers quality conferences with speakers who have been concerned about the issues they present.
