The Next Generation Network seeks to facilitate a successful transition into the Power systems industry by providing technical resources and networking opportunities.
The CIGRE U.S. Next Generation Network (NGN) was established for Early career professionals (less than 10 years experience) and Students in the Power industry. We strongly encourage students to become CIGRE members, as membership is FREE for students. Once you have become a CIGRE member, you will have free access to the working group and study committee technical brochures located at www.e-cigre.org.

The NGN mentoring program was established to provide an opportunity for young engineers to get involved in CIGRE working groups with limited or no knowledge in the subject area. Presently, there are NGN members participating in nine different working groups.
To get started:
1) Find the Study Committees/Working Groups you’re interested in.
2) Go to the structure section of the Study Committee website (C6 for example). You will see the list of working groups as well as the duration of the working group. It is important to make sure the working group is still being convened.
3) There is an additional list of new groups here that may not have been updated on the Study Committee website yet.
