IET Policy Panels

The IET has established twelve Policy Panels to assist in policy development.

Collaboration with other institutions and bodies

The IET believes that good public policy should be based on the best, evidence based advice available. We also recognise the need to make it as easy as possible for policymakers to find the best advice and for the engineering profession to “speak with one voice” on key issues.  To this end, the IET works with a number of institutions, organisations and companies.
