The NAE provides actionable, objective, and independent advice to stakeholders on a preferred course of action. All based on the outcomes of projects carried out by teams of its members (Fellows, Young Engineers) and collaborating partners. The advisory role of NAE will be aimed in first instance at improving the positive innovative impact of engineering in science and industry. Secondary is the advisory role towards governmental departments and policies. The advisory activities fall into two categories. Addressing systemic improvements in the knowledge and innovation ecosystem, and deep diving into specific strategic innovation topics. In formulating advice NAE strives for complementarity to and collaboration with other Dutch advisory bodies.
The NAE provides solicited and unsolicited authoritative, concrete, and applicable advice. Advice regarding effective cross-disciplinary systems approaches to engineering-based innovation for society. Supported by a world-class position in the underlying knowledge base and talent pool. The NAE Advice role is synergetic with its complementary roles offering a Forum for constructive debate and orchestrating the Pivot to action.
None of the stakeholders in the knowledge and innovation ecosystem is able on its own to give substance and shape to tackling the major societal transitions through the appropriate innovation based on engineering, human centric design, and the underlying technical sciences. This is a broader responsibility for all stakeholders in the ecosystem together, supported by the government. Through its advisory role, the NAE signals opportunities and threats related to societal challenges, the required technologies and knowledge base. NAE Advice will also address the crucial role of converging public-private partnerships in the socio-economic innovation. Addressing major societal problems while creating economic value.
The ability of NAE to supply actionable advice to its stakeholders is rooted in the deep and broad experience, track record, and credibility of its members and their extensive network. The NAE upholds strong principles of independence, objectivity, and scientific underpinning. It subscribes to the principles formulated by the KNAW in ensuring avoidance of conflicts of interest.
