Integrated Product Development Summer School 2019 (IPD ISS 2019)
Malta and Germany
Mon 13th - Fri 17th May 2019 and Mon 9th - Fri 13th Sep 2019
The 6th IPD Summer School aims at researchers interested in both understanding and researching the various interrelations between design, manufacturing, and business aspects.
The Summer School will take place over two weeks in Malta (May) and Germany (September).
With the industrial world looking at ways of how to overcome increasing demands on product performance and product individualisation, there is an increasing need to exploit product development, to cope with these business challenges. The aim of ipdISS sessions is to provide a platform through which postgraduates working in IPD-related fields can sharpen their understanding of current and emerging research issues in this interdisciplinary field. By the end of this two-week summer school, participants will have improved their competence and ability to tackle research issues with an engineering and business-oriented mind-set.
This International Summer School is endorsed and supported by the Design Society.
