IET Futures Fund achieves £500,000 match funding target

This amazing achievement highlights the IET’s commitment to supporting and inspiring the next generation of engineers. Through the programmes supported by the Futures Fund, we create change that extends across the world.

Professor Bob Cryan said: “During my year as President we set the ambitious target of raising £1m for Futures Fund, half kindly matched by the IET. I am delighted to say that, thanks to the generosity of our partners and members, this target had been achieved and will be used to support the next generation of engineers, helping us to collectively engineer a better world. I would like to thank all those who have supported this endeavour. Thank you.”

The IET Futures Fund continues to stand as a testament to our commitment to progress, innovation, and engineering a better future. From nurturing young engineering talent through programmes such as IET Faraday® Challenge Days and FIRST® LEGO® League, to supporting students and apprentices in their studies. The Futures Fund embodies our core organisational values and aspirations.

We want to extend our thanks to everyone who has played a part in our fundraising. Together, we have achieved a remarkable milestone, helping us to continue to shape a future for young engineers that’s more inclusive and full of possibilities.
