REHVA participated to the Kick Off Meeting of the “Engineers for Europe” (E4E) project, co-funded by the Erasmus+ programme of the European Union. The meeting was held in Brussels between 22-23 September 2022.
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.
REHVA will play a crucial role in:
- Contributing to the development of the structure and governance of the Skills Council;
- Anticipating skills mismatches for the engineering profession;
- Assessing the landscape of the engineering profession to identify challenges and opportunities;
- Contributing to the Skills Strategy for the European engineering profession
