18ᵗʰ EPIEM Conference 2025

Conference topic: Towards Sustainability in Industrial Engineering and Management

About the conference: Addressing the complex interplay of economic, social, and environmental factors, Industrial Engineering and Management encounters many challenges such as resource optimization, waste reduction, and ethical considerations. Balancing profitability with environmental objectives and social responsibility poses a persistent difficulty. Integrating sustainable practices into traditional industrial processes demands a paradigm shift in both mindset and methodologies. Overcoming these challenges requires innovative approaches, interdisciplinary collaboration, and a commitment to fostering a resilient, sustainable industrial ecosystem.
