The Young Pipeline Professionals Europe (YPPE) is a group of highly motivated young professionals working within the pipeline industry with the aim of knowledge sharing to ensure the longevity of the industry, addressing the industry's skill shortage and foster relationships.
YPPE was founded in 2018 (by Cindy Dirkx of the Dutch Young Pipeliner group and Michelle Unger of ROSEN) to connect both new and experienced professionals working within the pipeline industry across the continent. We are a group of approximately 200 young pipeline professionals with a vested interest in advancing the pipeline industry to a safe and sustainable future. We aim to grow this number through educational, social and networking events, while connecting young professionals with pipeline experts throughout Europe.
