If you enjoy taking part in specialist, technical networks, home to a variety of activities that reinforce your knowledge and expand your professional horizons – and gives you the optimal setting for networking with people in your professional field, IDA Professional Networks is a good place for you. They are also a place to meet people who could potentially be your future colleagues.
The Danish Society of Engineers, IDA, is the organizing force behind the technical specialist networks that gives you the opportunity to become part of a vast network of people with similar professional interests as yourself.
If you are not a member of IDA, you can still be associated with specific professional networks through subscribing as a corporate or guest member. There are currently 39 technical specialist networks. These hold events across the country and many have a number of regional committees that arrange local events in each of IDA's eight regions.
Boards consisting of active members run the networks. Most board members are engineers, but this is not a requirement. For example, some boards have engineers, architects and designers on them. The board members sit for 3 years and may be re-elected once. Boards meet approx. 6-8 times a year.
