Political organisation

IDAs Policy Work

IDA is politically independent and engages in a wide range of political issues that affect the work and the role of engineers and science professionals in society.

IDA’s goal is to be an influential, high profile society. Several politically appointed committees ensure that the views and objectives of our society become known and are made visible in areas ranging from

  • education policy
  • equal opportunity
  • industrial and labour market policies
  • work environment
  • research and technology

We aim to promote technology and the significance of our members’ skills and work to make sure the voice of engineers and science professionals will have an impact on political processes.

IDA’s duties in relation to individual members and the profession as a whole are dealt with by a number of committees, which are appointed by and report to IDA’s Executive Committee.
