Ken Dale Travel Bursary

The Ken Dale Travel Bursary offers young building services engineers the opportunity to experience technical, economic, environmental, social and political conditions in another country and to examine how these factors impact the practice of building services engineering.

The Ken Dale Travel Bursary has been established by CIBSE to commemorate Ken Dale's contribution to the Institution and the building services profession. The Ken Dale Travel Bursary makes awards available of between £1,500 and £4,000 to CIBSE members in the developmental stage of their career who wish to spend three to four weeks outside their own country researching aspects connected to their field of work and which will benefit CIBSE, their employer, their clients and the profession. CIBSE is especially keen to encourage applicants to take up the award for research that articulates with CIBSE's concern for the environment.

We are pleased to confirm the winner of the Ken Dale Travel Bursary 2016 as Elie El Choufani from WS Atkins & Partners Overseas - Dubai. Elie is our second International winner of the award and will be researching 'Energy reduction in airports'. He wants to experience a variety of climates for his research so will be travelling to Hong Kong, Stavanger, Bergen, Oslo, Galapagos Islands and San Francisco.
