Direct opportunities for our European IEEE members to engage include the following areas of interest (check all that apply):

Two working groups on Energy and ICT have been operating since 2014 and are comprised of 12 leading electrical engineers from all areas, including academia and industry. Each working group meets virtually on a monthly basis and in person several times a year to develop technical policy statements and other documents (e.g., public policy statements, white papers, responses to consultations, etc.) on a wide range of issues with the aim of informing policy makers at the technical level on key topics in the energy and ICT realm. Through these volunteer, peer-selected working groups, European IEEE members are able to develop public policy position statements and may engage in or help organize policy-related events.
Quarterly public policy webinars assist European IEEE members in obtaining a better understanding of how the European Union (EU) functions, educates them on which policies are currently being discussed between the EU institutions, and helps them understand why some EU policies are being prioritized. In particular, through these policy webinars, European IEEE members get thorough insight into how policies are shaped and drafted at the EU level, who the key decision-making institutions are and how they function, how to effectively influence and advocate, and what the key policy priorities are for the EU in the areas of energy, health, ICT, and mobility, among others.
The news bulletins contain information on the latest policy and industry-related activities that fall within IEEE’s fields of interest and includes the energy, renewables, emission trading system (ETS), smart grids, infrastructure, Digital Single Market, cybersecurity, artificial intelligence, and e-Health. These bulletins serve as a point of reference for IEEE to gain a better understanding of the EU's evolving legislative landscape, including public consultations announcements by the European Commission that fall within IEEE’s areas of interest and expertise, as well as include a comprehensive agenda which will flag future, relevant stakeholder events.
The EPPC allows members to develop and promote coordinated and consensus-based public policy position documents on topics including education, energy, and information and communication policies. The topics have been selected based on the relevance to the current EU legislative process, the expertise in the group, and their potential impact. Some of the nearly 60,000 IEEE members in Europe are individually involved in EU public affairs and in EU-funded research programs, where topics like education, energy, and ICT policies are discussed. However, as individuals they are not able to have the impact or visibility that they could have working through an international organization such as IEEE.
