About Sponsorship

Our Pubinars are made possible with generous donations from sponsors who support our aims. We are extremely grateful for their assistance!

Sponsors pay £150 to book the Golf Tavern for a Pubinar. That money then goes to provide food for the evening (it’s the Golf Tavern’s system).

Sponsors get their logo, a link, and description on our website and on marketing for the pubinar. And they are invited to give a short presentation on the evening they sponsor.

Established in 2003, EMEC is the world’s leading facility for demonstrating, testing and verifying wave and tidal energy converters in real sea conditions. The centre offers independent, accredited grid-connected test berths for full-scale prototypes, as well as test sites in less challenging conditions for use by smaller scale technologies, supply chain companies, and equipment manufacturers.

To date, more marine energy converters have been deployed in Orkney, Scotland, than at any other single site in the world with 20 wave and tidal energy clients spanning 11 countries having tested 31 marine energy devices.


Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE) was founded 1847 and strives to improve the world through engineering with over 120,000 members in 140 countries. The institute helps develop engineers and promote engineering in several industry sectors (such as Aerospace, Power & Energy, Manufacturing and Railway) through events, workshops, training and more.

The Edinburgh and South East Scotland Young Members Panel exists to engage like-minded individuals and stimulate discussion, through offering activities that are not possible, or preventatively expensive, without the support of the Institution.
