3pm - 4pm
David Long (MSSL): Probing the solar corona using global “EIT waves"
PS128
“EIT waves” are globally-propagating disturbances in the solar corona that remain controversial almost twenty years since they were first observed by the Extreme ultraviolet Imaging Telescope (EIT) onboard the Solar and Heliospheric Observatory (SOHO). Although they were originally interpreted as waves, this assumption has been challenged by opposing observations from different instruments and spacecraft. Many conflicting interpretations have therefore been proposed to explain the phenomenon. The high temporal and spatial resolution observations provided by the Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO) have revolutionised our understanding of these features and how they evolve through the solar corona. These observations have allowed the development of automated tracking algorithms and better data-driven simulations, which, combined with detailed case studies and statistical analysis of event databases, are leading to a better understanding of “EIT waves”. As a result, we are starting to move beyond a simple investigation of their physical nature, instead using them to study the corona through which they propagate. In this seminar I will discuss the theories proposed to explain “EIT waves”, placing them in the context of the observations available at the time and showing how they have been updated with improved observations and models. We then look towards the future, using a combination of ground and space-based instruments to examine how “EIT waves” may be used to study the structure of the solar corona and infer the properties of their associated coronal mass ejections.
4pm
RAEng - SME leaders programme

The Royal Academy of Engineering, sponsored through the Enterprise Hub, invites applications for its small- and medium-sized enterprises leaders programme. This supports leaders of high growth engineering SMEs with the aim of supporting the pursuit of excellence in engineering. The development of leadership will be supported through the following four main channels:

•training courses and executive education through the provision of a grant;

•master classes and workshops delivered by senior business leaders;

•provision of an experienced personal mentor;

•access to the London office and meeting space;

•hub membership.

Applicants must be leaders of engineering SME companies based in the UK and registered with Companies House. Applicants are expected to take part in events on completion of the programme.

Grants are worth between £10,000 to £15,000 towards the cost of training courses and executive education.

4pm
RAEng - Colin Campbell Mitchell award for engineers

Awarded to an individual or team of up to six engineers either working or studying in the UK. It will be awarded for having made the greatest contribution to the advancement of any field of engineering within the period of the four years prior to the making of the award. A cash prize of £3,000 will be awarded to an individual, up to a maximum of £6,000 for a team.

4pm
RAEng - Various awards

RAEng is open for (online) nominations for four of it's awards:

Colin Campbell Mitchell Award:

Awarded to an individual or team of up to six engineers either working or studying in the UK. It will be awarded for having made the greatest contribution to the advancement of any field of engineering within the period of the four years prior to the making of the award. A cash prize of £3,000 will be awarded to an individual, up to a maximum of £6,000 for a team.

Major Project Award:

The award recognises the contribution of a team of up to five engineers, based in the UK, who have delivered a major engineering project that has had a substantial impact on society.

Prince Philip Medal:

The medal is awarded biennially to an engineer of any nationality who has made an exceptional contribution to engineering as a whole through practice, management or education.

President's Medal:

The medal is awarded to a Fellow of the Academy who has contributed significantly to the Academy's aims and work through their initiative in promoting excellence in engineering
