On the 30th of April, the Technology and Society Congress (TaSC) will take place. TaSC is the annual congress for Industrial Engineering and Management students. The congress provides a broad view of technological developments and their impact on society.
This year, the theme of TaSC will be Decade Developments: How to thrive in 2020. The world is constantly in transition, and with the new decade having made its entry, it is the perfect time to take a moment to reflect on the developments that have taken place over the last decade, but also look at the challenges that companies will face in the current one. The IEM curriculum has a strong link with business and innovation, and it can therefore be very valuable to look at how the context has changed over the past few years and how it will change in the near future, making this a relevant theme. It is expected that this theme will interest all IEM students and related companies. The sub theme will be: “How to thrive in 2020”, referring to the focus on the challenges companies are currently facing and how these challenges are being dealt with in order to stay on top of their game.
The congress hosts multiple speakers with different backgrounds expressing their views on the theme. Our moderator will take care of in-depth discussions between students and speakers and create an informal atmosphere to stimulate interaction. Furthermore, companies are given the chance to showcase themselves during business cases. These cases will give the students an outstanding chance to apply what they know on a real-life situation and to interact with the companies’ representatives in an informal way. The day will be concluded with drinks followed by a wonderful dinner.
Further information regarding business cases and attending companies will be announced in the near future.
