About UKNEST

Formed in 2005 to promote engineering, science and technology on behalf of the naval sector, UKNEST has steadily grown to become established as a successful not-for profit organisation working on behalf of the naval enterprise. A member organisation, comprising both the public and private sector, UKNEST uniquely provides a safe environment for industry, government, professional institutions and academia to explore the issues of the day and provide thought leadership, advocacy and influence.

UKNEST promotes careers in the naval sector through STEM engagement, scholarships and publications. It encourages early career professionals, known as “FutureNEST”, to develop their knowledge and understanding of the sector through networking, site visits and “visioneering” concept work. Two Working Groups focus on People and Skills and Science & Technology and generate White Papers, surveys and conferences. Members themselves comprise a flourishing network that shares experience and guides the organisation.
