EUREL, the Convention of National Associations of Electrical Engineers of Europe, is a non profit organization with its headquarter in Brussels (Belgium) composed of 11 national Members Associations in 10 countries in greater Europe.
EUREL was founded in Switzerland in 1972 as the Convention of National Societies of Electrical Engineers of Western Europe before it started its expansion to central Europe.
Its objectives are to facilitate the exchange of information and to foster a wider dissemination of scientific, technical and related knowledge relevant to electrical engineering as well as standardization in the field of electrical engineering. In this way EUREL contributes to the advancement of scientific and technical knowledge for the benefit of both, the profession and the public it serves.
Among other aspects, EUREL also addresses the issues resulting from the current shortage of ICT engineers (which is expected to reach an alarming level within the next years) by engaging with students and young professionals.
The Secretary General office based in Brussels helps EUREL Members positioning their expertise and connecting to the European institutions. It also creates a bridge in between its Members' associations who can exchange on best practices and get inspired by European peers.
