We work with the global engineering community to build a sustainable society and an inclusive economy.
Through partnerships with national academies for engineering and technology around the world, we aim to strengthen global engineering leadership and promote UK expertise and interests.
The Council of Academies of Engineering and Technological Sciences (CAETS) is an independent, global alliance of national academies from advanced and emerging economies.
CAETS is the international voice of engineering and technology, based on the input and expertise of its 31 member nations. We’re an active CAETS member and we chair working groups on Engineering for the SDGs and Diversity & Inclusion.
We attend the CAETS annual conference each year. The 2022 conference takes place in Paris on 26-29 September on the theme Breakthrough Technologies for Healthcare.
The European Council of Applied Sciences, Technologies and Engineering (Euro-CASE) is an alliance of 23 national academies from across Europe, and exists to provide impartial, independent advice on technological issues to European institutions. Euro-CASE is a member of the SAPEA network, which offers a route for Europe’s national academies to advise the European Commission on key policy issues.
We attend the Euro-CASE annual conference each year. The 2022 conference takes place in Brussels on 19 September on the theme From Open Science to Innovation. We hosted the 2021 conference which was held virtually on the theme Engineering to Build Back Better.
Euro-CASE, in partnership with the US National Academy of Engineering, runs the EU-US Frontiers of Engineering. We promote UK expertise by nominating UK experts to take part
China-US-UK trilateral relationship
We work closely with the Chinese Academy of Engineering (CAE) and the US National Academy of Engineering (NAE) to deliver the Global Grand Challenges Summit series. Since 2013, the series has aimed to accelerate international engineering collaboration to address global challenges.
For details of the 2019 summit that we hosted in London and the 2021 trilateral webinar series on engineering responses to the pandemic, see our international collaborations.
We hold relationships with many national academies for engineering and technology around the world.
In line with our 2025 goals and the UK government’s priorities for international collaboration, we deliver joint activities with partners in Europe, Asia and North America to address shared challenges.

We’re a member of the International Federation of Engineering Education Societies (IFEES), which exists to improve engineering education worldwide.
