6 Aims and objectives of the project The development of the European dimension in EE through a careful identification of key aspects of interest to all branches of engineering. The activity of TREE will be structured into many relatively small Special Interest Groups (SIG), each one targeted to produce a specific “tool”, under the co-ordination of a SIG Leader.
