The Solent Local Network is led by local volunteers (see below) who come together to organise lectures and technical visits that provide opportunities to learn and meet new people. All events are open to the public and most are free of charge. Solent LN aims to raise awareness of science, engineering and technology in the local area and promote membership of the IET.
