Electronics Weekly, in partnership with RS Components, has announced that its 2020 BrightSparks programme is now open for entries.

Electronics Weekly, which celebrates its 60th birthday this year, formed the BrightSparks programme back in 2017 to celebrate the achievements of the most talented young people in UK electronics. With the aim to showcase the young talent within the industry, the BrightSparks programme is looking for people to nominate themselves, or a deserving colleague or friend between the ages of 18 and 30 who are already making a difference in the first years of their working life, or who are still studying at college or university and will be the people shaping UK electronics in the years to come.

A selection panel featuring judges from across the industry will shortlist the entries on Tuesday 17th March 2020 at RS Component’s King Cross HQ, with the awards ceremony taking placing on Monday 4th May at the IET at Savoy Place.

Here at Napier, we are firm supporters of celebrating success at any stage of your career, and we think its great to see Electronics Weekly inspiring the next generation of engineers. With the industry’s well-publicised skills gap, this programme is a great way to raise awareness of the fantastic work young engineers achieve, and ultimately encourage engineers for the future.
