Sustainability is becoming an ever more pressing issue. The European Union and others have conducted multiple studies of societal and technological trends. However, much less is known about what this means for how engineering companies work and how we as universities support them through our teaching and research. This talk reports on the findings of a workshop with over 40 participants from industry and academia and 10 preliminary interviews with experienced engineering designers and design managers from Sweden, the UK, Germany and Ireland.&quot;</div> <div><br /></div> <div>During the seminar, we offer lunch to participants who<strong> r</strong><strong><strong>e</strong>gister before 15:00 on 21 September</strong>. The seminar is open to everyone with an interest in female rolemodels within academia - especially from Chalmers, Gothenburg University, Borås University, MedTech West and the Sahlgrenska Academy.<br /></div> <div><br /></div> <div><a href=";utm_source=email&amp;utm_medium=email" target="_blank"><img class="ms-asset-icon ms-rtePosition-4" src="/_layouts/images/icgen.gif" alt="" />Register here</a></div></div> <div><br /></div> <div><img src="/SiteCollectionImages/Institutioner/E2/Kalendarium/WiSE/WiSE_250px.jpg" class="chalmersPosition-FloatLeft" alt="" style="margin:5px" /><br /><br />WiSE - Women in Science - aims to create a supportive network for young female researchers during their academic career.

This view greatly oversimplifies HRA and excludes one of the most powerful uses of HRA—the design of systems. HRA is a series of techniques for predicting human performance and identifying vulnerabilities in human-system interactions. As such, HRA can serve an important but still underutilized role in the design of safety-critical systems. HRA can identify human error traps and prioritize mitigation strategies. This talk will review recent applications of human reliability for the design of systems and as a complementary tool to more traditional human factors design and evaluation methods. Examples of HRA in design will be provided for control rooms in nuclear power, vehicles for long-duration space flight, new oil and gas systems, military systems, and in conventional usercentered design interfaces. The talk will conclude with ideas for new research and development opportunities for informing design through human reliability.

For example, CDIO programmes feature many team-based projects. Appropriate approaches for managing team dynamics and task selection are critical. If the team is international, gender issues may be even more critical. In addition, many CDIO programmes are male-dominated,  in terms of student numbers as well as the culture in the programmes.</p>​<span style="background-color:initial">The seminar will provide an opportunity to learn insights from some leading experts in the area and to share knowledge and experiences with other CDIO educators.</span><div><br /></div> <div><span style="font-weight:700">Target audience</span></div> <div><br /></div> <div><ul><li>Teachers in CDIO programmes<br /></li> <li>Educational leaders<br /></li> <li>Engineering education scholars with a particular interest in problem-based learning and CDIO<br /></li></ul> <div><br /></div></div> <div><a href=""><img class="ms-asset-icon ms-rtePosition-4" src="/_layouts/images/icgen.gif" alt="" />More information on​</a></div> mind of the machine – digital twins and processing intelligence<p>Conference Hall, Lindholmen Conference Center</p><p>​Industrial design and engineering, as well as healthcare, are facing unprecedented challenges with product complexity, sustainability requirements and increasingly faster innovation cycles. A key enabler of digitalization is virtual models of processes, products or services. By pairing the virtual and physical worlds we allow for analysis of data and monitoring of systems to take care of problems before they even occur.  New opportunities are awaiting around the corner. This seminar presents opportunities in production with support from digital solutions from process to system.</p> Sustainability Day 2018<p>Campus Johanneberg, mostly at Chalmers conference centre, Student Union Building</p><p>​Chalmers Sustainability Day is back - Tuesday 23 October 2018.
