KES International COVID-19 Challenge
A Transition to a more Resilient World - International Virtual Summit
The Summit will be hosted on our innovative virtual platform, KES Online.
KES Covid-19 Challenge is an international summit focussing on technological, economic, and social developments to combat the effects of global and local disasters as well as the ways in which we can build back better for our communities, industry, and the environment.
KES International is pleased to respond to the current situation by providing the COVID-19 Challenge International Virtual Summit. This provides an opportunity for researchers, engineers, technologists, economists, and managers and to meet, present their work, and discuss ways to build a more resilient economy and a society better able to resist sporadic and continuing disasters.
The Summit will feature invited thought pieces from experts in the field as well as contributive presentations from researchers and others working in the field. It is intended that a volume of Summit proceedings will be published in the KES Springer book series 'Advances in Sustainability Science and Technology' (subject to confirmation).
