About Royal Academy of Engineering
Engineering is at the heart of our nation and our future, transforming ideas and materials into global infrastructure, products and services that in turn increase the wealth and health of our economy and society.
As the UK’s national academy for engineering, we bring together the most successful and talented engineers from across the engineering sectors for a shared purpose: to advance and promote excellence in engineering. We provide analysis and policy support to promote the UK’s role as a great place to do business. We take a lead on engineering education and we invest in the UK’s world-class research base to underpin innovation. We work to improve public awareness and understanding of engineering.
The Academy runs several funding programmes which aim to encourage international engineering collaborations, support the expansion of international networks, and allow researchers to gain international experience and access world-class expertise.
