European Network for Accreditation of Engineering Education ENAEE is engaged in launching. in accord with its General Policy Statement and in collaboration with the EUR-ACE Implementation and PRO-EAST projects, the EUR-ACE European accreditation system of engineering programmes.

In this system (described in detail in EUR-ACE document A2) National Agencies accredit study programmes, as they already do, and the EUR-ACE label can be added to the accreditation, provided the Agency and the programme satisfy the EUR-ACE Framework Standards). The label will distinguish between "First Cycle Degree" and "Second Cycle Degree", in accord with the European Qualification Framework.

IGIP is currently one of the members of ENAEE.
