On April 26th, the 12th edition of 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 ongoing technological developments and their impact on society.
This year, the theme of TaSC is Circular Economy. Today's linear ‘take, make, dispose’ economic model is reaching its physical limits. Transitioning into a circular economy, which aims to keep materials, components, and products at their highest utility and value at all times, is therefore embraced by a fast-growing number of companies. This transition will require companies to completely re-evaluate their current business models. More insight into this process and its challenges and opportunities will be given during TaSC 2018.
The congress will contain several lectures from speakers with backgrounds in different parts of industry. In-between these lectures there will be a lunch, at which personal interaction with companies will be possible. Furthermore, it will be possible to get in close contact with a company through a case. These cases give students an outstanding chance to apply their knowledge on a real company problem. After the official closing, every visitor can have a drink and a chat with some of the present companies. Finally, the day will be concluded with a lovely dinner.
This year's edition of TaSC will be held at the 'Noordlease stadium', the stadium of FC Groningen. The ambiance and appearance make it a great location. During lunch and dinner, you will have a nice view of the pitch, and cases will be held in the skyboxes of the stadium.
More information about the cases will appear in the near future on the TaSC website. You will then have an opportunity to indicate your case preference.
