Welcome to the 50th NORDTEK Annual Meeting and Conference

The 50th Annual meeting and Conference of NORDTEK
will be held from June 8 – 10 at the University of Iceland in Reykjavik, Iceland.

On June 8 the meetings of contact persons, students and the NORDTEK board will be held and on June 10 the NORDTEK general assembly (Rectors meeting) will be held.

On June 9 the presidents of NORDTEK and the University of Iceland invites you to the 50th NORDTEK conference in Reykjavik, Iceland.

The theme of the conference is:

Engineering in a Hyper-Connected World”

Engineering is increasingly influenced by information technology and integrated systems. This is evident in e.g. Structure Health Monitoring, Performance Optimization, Hazard Monitoring, Home Control Systems, Supply Chain Management, and Engineering Service and Education. How should the Engineering education evolve to take advantage of these trends?

The NORDTEK conferences bring together leaders, staff and students from the Technical universities and faculties in the Nordic and Baltic countries, their collaboration partners in industry and other stakeholders to discuss topics of mutual interest.
