 return to their previous level of commitment, while the FEANI community of 35 National Members is maintained.
In addition to the concerns on non-paid membership fees, FEANI is also challenged by the further successful devel- opment of its products: the frequently consulted INDEX on Engineering Education in Europe and the mainte- nance of the EurIng Register with further issuing of new EurIng certi cates. We also must re ect on the societal and economic value of continuing the promotion of the EngCard as we do not seem to obtain a critical mass in terms of number of cards issued.
Despite these  nancial concerns, I am con dent that we will be successful in turning this development around. A  rst effort thereto has been made by six National Members who voluntarily increased their contribution in 2015. At the same time FEANI staff continues to master an increased workload while focusing on the promotion and visibility of our Organization, especially in the European political arena. Our main effort during 2016 will be the cooperation with ECEC on the EU project on Common Training Principles. With a future solid funding, FEANI can continue to provide its members with attractive services and strengthen its successful public affairs to the bene t of 4 million engineers in Europe.
