SERINA is an online portal dedicated to the support and promotion of engineering education and research that best demonstrate or seek to demonstrate active practices of sustainability and engagement within the communities that the initiatives aspire to serve.

SERINA is a global engineering education initiative of the International Association for Continuing Engineering Education (IACEE) that stems from the organisation’s Porto Declaration in May 2016, being a pledge by members to seek solutions to 21st Century Grand Challenges threatening survival.
