IEEE and ADEX Collaboration Success

In News — March 31 2008

This past 26 and 27 March, ADEX and the Joint IEEE IAS and CSS Chapter of Spain partnered up to offer a professional development and networking event in Madrid. Offered in English, the program included a 2-day professional development course in advanced industrial control taught by ADEX instructors, and a networking dinner that featured special invited speaker Dr. Pilar Molina Gaudo, an IEEE Senior Member, of the University of Zaragoza. Fifteen industrial and academic professionals, as well as Master’s and PhD students from across Spain and Italy attended the event.

Participating industrial organizations included companies such as Iberdrola, ITP Group, and International Rectifier. Leading academic institutions were also well represented, as the event hosted participants from such schools as the Universidad Autónoma de Barcelona, the Universidad Politécnica de Madrid, the Universidad Carlos III, the UNED and the Instituto Superior de Energía.

The course was hosted at the IMADE Centre located on the South Campus of the Universidad Politécnica de Madrid, and the dinner was hosted at the Mesón del Corregidor – a historic cellar restaurant located under the Plaza Mayor in Madrid.
