Alliances between universities and industries are growing because of increasing demand for innovation, rising global competitiveness, and declining government support for research and development. However, a big majority of such partnerships do not succeed and terminate with little or no benefits to either party. This conference will shed light on industrial engineering techniques and practices that may help organizations and universities in their quest to build successful university – industry alliances.
The 1st GCIE is a highly anticipated conference due to the popularity of the field. The 1st GCIE is set to become an exciting event with the potential for continued growth throughout the years. The 1st GCIE will be a forum for academics, managers and solution providers, which brings together researchers and practitioners from all over the world, promoting opportunities to share experiences, debate ideas, identify tendencies, and introduce the latest developments in the largely multidisciplinary field of Industrial Engineering. This is especially important since this field can largely benefit from increased collaboration. The 1st GCIE will take place from July 14th to July 15th at the Elite World Istanbul Hotel in Istanbul, Turkey.
Istanbul is the only city in the world built on two continents. Its rich history has given it a multitude of museums, historical buildings and mosques, Byzantine churches and Roman aqueducts. This exciting venue is alive with the hustle and bustle of business and trade which for centuries has made it a vital trading hub between east and west. Straddling Europe and Asia, Istanbul is the largest and most monumental city in Turkey, and is a melting pot of cultures which mix harmoniously on both sides of a city split geographically by the Bosphorus strait. This bustling city is home to over 13 million people, and from 14 to 15 July 2016, will also be home to the 1st GCIE.
