During the seminar, the Sino-EU President’s Summit was held to discuss in-depth t how to further deepen existing cooperation and mutual understanding, discussing the realization of sustainable development of SEEEP and expedite student exchange between countries, boost the effectiveness of the summer school along with a doctoral program. Both China and Europe will continue to improve the university engineering education and training methods, promote cooperation between universities and enterprises, enhance the students' innovative spirit and engineering practices, and jointly promote substantive cooperation in training high-level engineering personnel in China and the EU.

The Sino-EU Engineering Education Alliance is made up of 18 Chinese universities and 12 European universities. The Alliance promotes wide-ranging cooperation between members in the areas of engineering education, student and teacher exchanges, training and the development of new educational resources, and scientific research.

In 2010, 12 Chinese and 12 European universities (CLUSTER) held the first “Sino-European Engineering Education Seminar” in Shanghai. There they signed the “"Education Ministry of the People's Republic of China and European Union of Polytechnic University Education Research Alliance on Sino-European Engineering Education Cooperation Memorandum of Understanding” and co-founded SEEEP. Since then Chinese and European universities have taken turns hosting the annual conference.
