West Europe Student-Young Professional Congress (WESYP) brings together young professionals and IEEE student members and volunteers from Western Europe together to share their stories and discuss the on-going advancements in the world of science and technology. Focused on the theme “Building a Sustainable Future”, this year’s WESYP is a platform to network, train leaders of tomorrow and share thoughts on technological advancements for a sustainable future.
