E4E Press Release AECEF
AECEF in Brussels for the launch of the “Engineers for Europe” project co-funded by the Erasmus+ Programme
AECEF, represented by the president Prof. Nicolaos Theodossiou, visited Brussels for the Kick Off Meeting of the “Engineers for Europe” (E4E) project, co-funded by the Erasmus+ programme of the European Union.
E4E is an Alliance for Innovation bringing together 13 partners from eight European countries representing the different facets of the engineering profession. The E4E project has three main pillars of institution building, strategic foresight and training to sustain the competitiveness of the engineering profession.
FEANI, the European Federation of National Engineering Associations, is the coordinator of the E4E project and will work with partners in the next 36 months to establish the European Engineering Skills Council, identify future trends and needs in skills and competences for engineers and develop innovative training on transversal skills for the profession.
AECEF will play a crucial role in education and training in upskilling and reskilling engineers, mainly in the areas of Civil Engineering, while:
- Assessing the landscape of the engineering profession to identify challenges and opportunities in Continuing Professional Development;
- Contributing to the Skills Strategy for the European engineering profession
- Improve Sustainability competences of engineers.
