The EUGENE Network aims at improving the impact of European Engineering Education (EE) on competitiveness, innovation and socio-economic growth in a global context.
This goal will be achieved by setting–up and a top-level “discussion & action” forum to monitor and support the continuous evolution of EE in the EHEA and to open its competition and cooperation borders beyond Europe. Indeed, although European EE and research is well recognised worldwide, its attractiveness still needs improving, and time has come to discuss, analyse and improve its strengths and weaknesses in the global context: a first step has been the establishment of the worldwide Intern. Fed. of Engineering Education Societies IFEES. Socio-economic growth and competitiveness is mostly “technology driven” and based upon innovation and entrepreneurship: therefore, EE is a priority for the industrial/professional corporate world.
