European Institute of Industrial Leadership


Originally positioned as a project of the International Club of Engineers and Industrialists (CIII), the European Institute for Industrial Leadership (EIIL) aims to serve the European technology-led and manufacturing industries, and their partners, by improving the business leadership qualities of engineers, technologists and scientists through the provision and promotion of highly relevant post graduate education and training.

The training curriculum is aimed at Engineers in leadership positions, and is run by trainers with engineering leadership skills.  Many of the workshops are run an a highly successful "Master class" format where students are given access to senior engineering managers in different fields and industries and are encouraged to mine the knowledge of these contacts to build their own skills.

About the EIIL

The European Institute for Industrial Leadership (EIIL) was initiated by a network of senior business leaders, venture capitalists, and representatives of engineering professions across Europe. Following their 'Leaders of Industry' survey and conference in Brussels in November 2003, the EIIL was established as a not-for-profit membership organisation dedicated to helping to stimulate growth in Europe's technology-led and manufacturing industries by providing more highly educated and better trained business leaders who are able to master technology and growth internationally, and rise to the challenges of a unique home market with over 430 million consumers.

The EIIL, advocates the view that business decision-making in the technology-led and manufacturing sectors requires a fundamental understanding of technology and of the processes of innovation and manufacture, as well as of all the tools of business in a multicultural environment.
