Engineering a future outside the EU

securing the best outcome for the UK.

Engineering a future outside the EU: securing the best outcome for the UK has been compiled by an alliance of the UK's professional engineering organisations, including the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET), led by the Royal Academy of Engineering and representing over 450,000 engineers.

It draws on wide-ranging consultation with engineers from all corners of the profession, including from academia, industry and the public sector.

With engineering contributing at least £280 billion in gross value added to the economy - 20% of the total - the report aims to inform government of the key issues that impact on the UK’s engineering performance as it forms its position on leaving the EU.

Engineering an economy that works for all

The government’s renewed focus on industrial strategy is a crucial and very welcome step towards engineering an economy that works for all. It provides an essential opportunity to build a shared vision – across government, industry and civil society – for the UK’s new position on the global stage following its departure from the EU, and to create an accompanying policy framework that will ensure that resources are aligned in support of this vision.
