The Netherlands Academy of Engineering
The NAE unites the top experts active in technological sciences and applied research and development. They come from scientific, governmental, and industrial organizations, and share the passion for engineering-based innovation as a means to overcome many of our societal challenges, and to sustain our country’s earning power within the European and international context.

The purpose of the NAE is to foster a vibrant and effective climate of responsible, inclusive, and impactful engineering-based innovation, rooted in a world-class knowledge and talent base in technological sciences and human centric design. It also strives to make the voice of engineering better heard among key decision makers. It will do so by offering a forum for constructive debate, by orchestrating the pivot to action, and by providing advice on urgent strategic challenges and necessary improvements to the Dutch knowledge and innovation system.
