5 April 2012 Aberdeen Branch SUT+ Launch Event, Aberdeen, UK


Flyer PDF file



SUT+ has been created for developing professionals working in the subsea industry in Scotland. It will provide a platform to develop valuable industry knowledge outwith the traditional office environment. SUT+ will provide a programme of technical and social events, arranged by developing professionals for developing professionals, to encourage and extend awareness of the subsea industry.

This launch event, SUT+ New Beginnings, was a social opportunity to learn about SUT+, to meet the people involved, and to meet and network with other developing professionals. The evening included an opportunity to explore the Aberdeen Maritime Museum and to learn about the history of the subsea industry of Aberdeen. The event was open to all but welcomed new entrants to the subsea industry and developing professionals typically in the first 10 years of their career.

The event was primarily a social event, with food and drink provided, but included a number of short presentations:
