Title: 30th MIRCE International Symposium
Welcome to the 30th MIRCE International Symposium
Thank you for joining us on this historic day for the MIRCE Akademy. It took us three decades to build the current body of knowledge of MIRCE Science that is now seriously challenged by the outbreak of COVID-19, which shown that pandemics, like other rarely occurring catastrophes, have happened in the past and will happen in the future. Although humans cannot prevent dangerous viruses from emerging, we should be prepared to dampen their consequences for the economy and all of society. Thus, the main objective of the Symposium is to address the severe impact of COVID-19 on the Management of Iindustrial Reliability, Cost and Effectiveness across the globe, and to present the best technological, social and economical actions taken to deal with it.
The MIRCE Akademy is in debt to all the contributing authors for agreeing to share their specific knowledge of COVID-19 with all of us today. The papers will be released in accordance to the time table below, so please refresh the sceen accordingly. To access a paper please click on the highlighted title.
