Aberdeen, Highlands and Islands YPN

Welcome to the Aberdeen, Highlands and Islands YPN branch page

Welcome to the Aberdeen, Highlands and Islands YPN branch page.

The Young Professionals Network (YPN) was set up to develop the skills and energy sector knowledge of professionals in the early stages of their career. Delivering a tailored program of events throughout the year, the YPN empowers young professionals to Learn, Network and Grow.

The YPN events provide young professionals with the opportunity to hear from industry leaders and experts, discussing key topics relevant to the energy industry in the North East of Scotland as well as on a global scale.

The majority of YPN events are free to attend, with the exception of the Annual Dinner & Dance which is provided at a reduced rate for Energy Institute members.
