The International Academy for Production Engineering (CIRP) is the world leading organization in production engineering research and is at the forefront of design, optimization, control and management of processes, machines and systems. The Academy has restricted membership based on demonstrated excellence in research and has some 600 academic and industrial members from 50 industrialized countries.
Young researchers, whose research contribution in the area of production/manufacturing science has been deemed significant, can be officially nominated as CIRP Research Affiliates. The objective of the Research Affiliates program is to create, develop, and promote a sustainable CIRP-network of outstanding young researchers in the field of production engineering. Research Affiliates are expected to participate in CIRP- networks designed to exchange and discuss current research results, create collaborative research projects, and facilitate communication within the CIRP community.
The Centre for SMART is very pleased that one of their own members, Dr. Alessandro Simeone has been accepted as a Research Affiliate. Please visit our 'Publications' section to learn more about his research.
