In times of great threats for the planet and humanity, the engineering consulting community faces unprecedented challenges. We must think and act without delay in many different fields such as low-carbon construction and operation, carbon-free mobility, preservation of biodiversity, sustainable energy, and resilience of territories to climate change, to name just a few. No one company can do that alone, and the best practices must be shared at a global scale. Europengineers is a place where such collective intelligence happens. Engineering companies coming from different parts of Europe gather to exchange best practices openly, both at the CEO and operational levels.
