    It is our pleasure to provide information and increase the visibility of Croatian Engineering Association, highlighting its role, the main activities and achievements in 2014 and 2015. Croatian Engineering Association (Hrvatski Inženjerski Savez, HIS), is National society of engineers in Croatia composed of 36 members societies of different engineering disciplines with over 20.000 engineers in total.
In our efforts to be recognized as the authoritative voice of Croatian engineers we have succeeded in enlarging our organization with 4 new members, engineering societies that have joined HIS and accepted our strategy and policy. Our  nancial independence gives us strength in the dialogue with relevant partners, educational institutions as well as with governmental bodies whenever strategic questions related to technology, higher education programs or reindustrialization and related economy are on the table.
In order to contribute to the work on mobility through FEANI instruments such as the FEANI INDEX, the EURING title and the Engineering card, very appreciated by our members, we stimulate the debate with the higher education institutions that deliver engineering programs, and we support their involvement.
The main achievements in 2014 and 2015
Croatian Engineering Association organized the National Engineering Day on March 2nd, 2015, in collaboration with the Croatian Academy of Engineering and supported by the Croatian Academy of Sciences and Arts. It was the  rst time a gathering in appreciation to engineering professions, but it would be organized on the same day every year in future. The date reminds of the  rst engineering association: Croatian society of Engineers and Architects has been consti- tuted on March 2nd, 1878.
