The UP Industrial Engineering Alumni Association, together with UP Industrial Engineering Club, invites you to be a part of the symposium which hopes to start a conversation on challenges, limitations, threats and solutions to a critical issue that our nation faces: food insecurity.
IEmagineering Conferences 2018: IEmagineering Systems for Food Security, to be held on April 21 at the National Institute of Physics, University of the Philippines – Diliman, proposes that the application of IE principles and systems thinking is key to viewing national food security holistically–to better grasp its dimensions, and then to be able to design, plan and propose multi-sectoral strategies, as solid steps towards nation-building. It also hopes to spark the participants’ imagination by presenting innovative and pioneering solutions and open the students’ minds to the idea that there are many career and business opportunities for Industrial Engineers in this area.
The conference will have six (6) speakers, namely: Mr. Fortunato T. de la Peña, Secretary of the Department of Science and Technology, Mr. Reuben S.J. Pangan, President of Air21 Logistics, Ms. Christine Salangad-Pardiñas, Vice President for Supply Chain of Rustan’s Supercenters, Inc., Mr. Noel Tempongko, Jr., Vice President and General Manager of Century Pacific Agricultural Ventures, Mr. Kallol Mukherjee, Procurement Director of Philippines and Vietnam Markets, and Mr. Amante Aguilar, Group Head of Supply Chains at Del Monte Philippines.
Listen to some of the country’s renowned IE professionals as they inspire and educate over 400 participants from all over Metro Manila on food insecurity. Together, let’s cultivate desire for an effective nation-building!
