Our Mission

We make the crucial role of engineers more visible in our societies. We find common solutions to current global challenges and strengthen our influence on cross border decisions, which impact our members’ lives and careers. We coordinate our positions and speak with one voice in international organisations, at the EU level and across the Nordic region. Our cooperation focuses on securing sustainable working life for engineers, and on demonstrating the role of engineers in impacting the sustainable transition of our societies.

Celebrating 15 years of ANE

On May 15th, ANE celebrated its 15th anniversary. To celebrate, we invited the presidents of our member organisations in Denmark, Iceland, Finland, Norway and Sweden to share their thoughts about why ANE is important and how ANE makes a difference.

ANE’s 10th Anniversary

To mark the 10 years of cooperation in May 2017, ANE has organised the workshop: The future perspectives for Nordic engineers in the new world of work. The workshop has engaged participants in the knowledge sharing on best practices and discussion of the new requirements for skills, diversity in the workplace and impact on engineers’ work, as well as the role of engineers in developing ethical standards.
