European Engineering Report 2010

The European Engineering Report commissioned by VDI (The Association of German Engineers) and developed by the Cologne Institute for Economic Research IW Köln, aims at providing a comprehensive overview of the most important indicators with respect to the European labour market for engineers and their education. The data allow a comparison across 31 European countries and relevant conditions that engineers face there.

Engineers play an important role in the innovative performance and the competitiveness of European countries. The aim of this report is therefore to provide a comprehensive overview of the most important indicators with respect to the European labour market for engineers and to their education. The report covers the 27 European Union member states, the EU applicants Croatia and Iceland as well as Norway and Switzerland. Generally, the indicators show a great heterogeneity between the countries. The extent to which engineers are appreciated appears to differ widely across Europe.
