IET London: Savoy Place
A brief history
The Clerk Maxwell Lecture was initiated by the IERE in 1951 in honour of Scottish physicist, James Clerk Maxwell.
It was retained after the merger with the Institution of Electrical Engineers (IEE) as a “most prestigious lecture event” to be held when suitable speakers and subjects arose (approximately every third year).
The IEE and IIE merged in 2006 to become the IET, and now this lecture is in the IET’s Prestige Lecture Series and is run every year on a power related subject.
This section provides a complete list of the past speakers at this Prestige Lecture. You can also find links to related media for some of the more recent lectures.
