The Southern European Systems Engineering Tour of April 2016, feedback... 

The Italian chapter of INCOSE (AISE), the Swiss chapter of INCOSE (SSSE), the French chapter of INCOSE (AFIS) and the Spanish chapter of INCOSE (AEIS) organized a series of events in Rome, Brugg-Windisch, Paris and Madrid. The purpose of these events was to promote Systems Engineering among practitioners and an interested audience, as well as strengthening the links between the chapters. The format of the events was a day of lectures at each venue.

This event was organized by the SSSE this year in Brugg Windisch at the FHNW, hosted by Prof.Dr. Samuel Fricker from the Center of Requirements Engineering. 8 presentations were held for about 32 participants who have spent a day of lessons, networking and gained new insights into Systems Engineering together in the well organized area of FHNW.
