About Summer School

The Summer School promotes interaction and cooperation among researchers coming from different universities and enhances the sense of belonging to the scientific sector SSD ING-IND/17 (Industrial Systems Engineering).

We are in the midst of a profound transformation of how firms, and industrial firms among them, produce value. Several sharp transformations are disrupting the value chains, bringing new opportunities and challenges. While these transformations ask for new competences, new business models and new paradigms, we believe that our work as researchers and professors alike is also challenged to provide these new competences and to train a new generation of engineers and managers.

The topic of the edition is “AUGMENTED KNOWLEDGE: A new era of industrial systems engineering”. Accordingly, the School will encompass:

  • scientific sessions where young researchers can present their work, and more experienced colleagues can support their abilities to structure and present their results 
  • training sessions, that this year will address the skills required in times of great technological, organizational and managerial innovation,
  • and a social programme, encompassing both leisure activities and moments of discussion among participants and with industrial managers
