The UK faces increasingly complex challenges that require engineering expertise to address. But the scope and diversity of the engineering profession can be difficult for government to navigate, making relevant expertise hard to access.

The National Engineering Policy Centre connects policy makers with critical engineering expertise to inform and respond to policy issues of national importance, giving policymakers a route to advice from across the whole profession, and the profession a unified voice on shared challenges.  

The Centre is an ambitious partnership, led by the Royal Academy of Engineering, between 39 different UK engineering organisations representing 450,000 engineers.  

Our ambition is that the National Engineering Policy Centre will be a trusted partner for policy makers, enabling them to access excellent engineering expertise, for social and economic benefit. 

The National Engineering Policy Centre held its second plenary at the Academy in July; for photos of this event, click below.
