The Netherlands Academy of Engineering has been granted membership in CAETS
The Netherlands Academy of Engineering has been accepted as member and official representative of the Netherlands within the International Council of Academies of Engineering and Technological Sciences (CAETS) on 10 November 2023. It succeeds the former Dutch AcTI organization, which has been an active member of CAETS since 1993. With its membership in CAETS, the Netherlands Academy of Engineering establishes a crucial link to translate international developments in the field of engineering to the Dutch context in its forum, pivot and advice activities and to advocate Dutch perspectives in the international arena. Both organizations are looking forward to a fruitful collaboration.
