The Réseau Méditerranéen des Ecoles d'Ingénieurs (RMEI) was set up in June 1997 at the initiation of the Groupe Ecole Supérieure d’Ingénieurs de Marseille (ESIM), an organisation run by the Chambre de Commerce et d'Industrie Marseille-Provence (CCIMP: Marseille-Provence Chamber of Commerce and Industry). Following the first General Assembly in 1997 at Sophia Antipolis (France), the RMEI has held its annual meeting successively in Barcelona (1998) , Tunis (1999), Istanbul (2000), Rabat (2001), Madrid (2002), Patras (2003), Genoa (2004), Algiers (2005), Izmir (2006), Marseille (2007),
Hammamet (2008), Rome (2009), Thessaloniki (2010), Rabat (2011) and Venice-Padua (2012).

Since 2001, the RMEI has become the network that associates the engineering schools and universities of the Community of Universities of the Mediterranean (CUM), an official UNESCO body. In 2007, the RMEI adopted a legal status under French law (association under the French law of 1901) which has given it more autonomy and which facilitates the procedures for collaboration within the framework of partnerships between active members and with associate members, local authorities and industry. The RMEI is run by a bureau with 7 members and administered by a Board of Administration with 10 members.
