Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


This paper presents the objectives and goals of the EAEEIE and results of the thematic network projects and activities run under its patronage. The EAEEIE – European Association for Education in Electrical and Information Engineering was established in order to enhance partnerships, cooperation, recognition of engineering degrees and exchange of students and staff between European universities. The EAEEIE organization was actively involved in a number of thematic network activities supported by EU-programs spanning 20 years. Participants from many European universities worked together on five different projects since 1996. These five projects gave the Association an opportunity to develop and strengthen cooperation and partnerships in the educational area in Electrical and Information Engineering (EIE) in a European dimension. The paper presents examples of some of the new partnerships, cooperation agreements between universities and double degree programs are given and shows that the Association body that is truly adding value to the key stakeholders in EIE education across Europe and beyond.
