Second Public Seminar

A collaboration between IEEE SMC, INCOSE & City University London

The disciplines of Sustainability and Systems Engineering have much to offer each other.

Sustainability science shapes the sustainability agenda, informing policies and frameworks to set the goals and objectives to enable a sustainable future. Systems engineering provides methods and approaches for balancing conflicting stakeholder requirements and ensuring that solutions are built the right way to satisfy the right needs, where sustainability objectives are one of many drivers. Sustainability Engineering provides proven techniques for managing the development of technologies to enable desired emergent behaviour from complex systems (and systems-of-systems) and what could be desirable than saving the planet.

This is the second in a series of seminars addressing the principles and practices relating to sustainability in soft and hard systems.

We believe this is a rich and fertile landscape scientifically, socially and technically and welcome participation and contribution to the programme:
