  • Facilitate international education of IEM students

In recent years EPIEM conferences have brought together a group of Professors of Industrial Engineering and Management from across Europe, which have been promoting the sharing, building and debating about IEM education, the profession, research and projects:

  • Sharing: presenting and discussing details about the experience of IEM education at our universities, by means of short presentations and exchange of ideas.
  • Building: advancing in the development of joint tools, projects and knowledge about IEM education and profession (e.g. editorial projects such as the special issue of IJIEM, joint EU project applications, etc.)
  • Debating: identifying challenges and opportunities for the advancement of IEM education (e.g. addressing student mobility issues, analysing IEM curriculum, etc.).
