Event description
1st International Symposium on Humanitarian Engineering Challenges and Approaches

About this event

University of West Attica, Athens, Greece will host this event online due to the extraordinary conditions caused by the Covid-19 pandemic.

The 1st International Symposium on Humanitarian Engineering Challenges and Approaches will be hosted by the University of West Attica, Athens in collaboration with the ENHANCE Project - ENabling Humanitarian Attributes for Nurturing Community-based Engineering.

It will comprise two sessions of talks and discussions on Humanitarian Engineering, the challenges faced by engineers globally, and approaches that offer sustainable solutions.

We strongly believe that the theme of the Symposium covers topics that are extremely important for both society and the research community. To this end, we hope to be the trigger for an ongoing effort, with the aim of organizing it each year in a different country.

The agenda will include speakers from the ENHANCE partner institutions in Bangladesh, Vietnam and Indonesia as well as selected key note speakers.

All registered participants will receive a certificate of attendance.

ENHANCE is a 3 year collaborative project supported through the European Commission under the Erasmus+ Key Action 2 Cooperation for innovation and the exchange of good practices; Capacity Building in the field of Higher Education.

Programme committee: Yiannis Koumpouros, Angelos Georgoulas, Georgia KremmydaOrgansing committee: Yiannis Koumpouros, Angelos Georgoulas
