ITA Young Members's NL
Han Admiraal attended a network event at the TU Delft, Faculty of Civil Engineering and Geosciences, for students and young professionals. The event sponsored by ITA Member Nation representative for the Netherlands, Kivi-TTOW, was aimed at setting the first steps towards an ITA Young Member’s group in the Netherlands.
Admiraal introduced the ITA and ITACUS during the event. He stressed the importance of national ITA YM groups: “These groups of young professionals are vital for our industry. Not only do they allow the setting up of networks among the younger generation, they provide vital continuity. ITA YM has already proven its value in other countries, for the Netherlands it would be great if a group could be created.”
ITACUS supports these groups as they provide the young professionals that participate in the Young Professional Think Deep Programme that is run by ITACUS jointly with ISOCARP. It aims at bringing together young planners and engineers to look at how urban underground space can help solve some of the challenges cities are facing.
