Intercultural communication and adaptation in the British and Japanese construction industry

This social event is attached to a funded British Academy project which aims to shed light on the current intercultural needs and management strategies of early career and more experienced staff in the engineering industry and allow for a comparative analysis between those in UK/Japan-based companies. Major outcomes from this research project include (1) development of training and teaching materials; (2) delivery of training for engineers already operating in an international workplace and for students preparing to do so.

Please find below the preliminary programme (subject to change)
