The South European Systems Engineering tour

The so called SESE 2016 is a joined project performed by 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). They organize a series of events in Rome, Brugg-Windisch, Paris and Madrid. The purpose of these events is to promote Systems Engineering among practitioners and interested audience, and also to strengthen the links between the chapters. The format of the events is a lecture day at each venue. The intention is to have four talks that are repeated at each venue and complemented by a number of talks held locally at each venue.

 

 

 

The “Connected Health Lab”

The « Connected Health Lab » is a new research platform launched in October 2015 in the facilities of the ISIS engineering school, located  SW France in Castres town near Toulouse . It is a “Living Lab” which fosters pathways between researchers, industrials, innovative start-up and user’s communities.

 

Cancer viewed as a systemic disease

Example of “Systems Thinking”– Reconsidering mental models, in this case the role of inflammation in diseases such as cancer is developed in this paper, published in 2004 in the “Journal of Inflammation”.

Cancer, inflammation and the AT1 and AT2 receptors
Authors: Gary Robert Smith and Sotiris Missailidis

The critical role of inappropriate inflammation is becoming accepted in many diseases that affect man, including cardiovascular diseases, inflammatory and autoimmune disorders, neurodegenerative conditions, infection and cancer. Based on current literature and clinical studies on angiotensin receptor inhibitors, the paper concludes that blockade of the AT1 receptor in synergy with cancer vaccines and anti-inflammatory agents should offer a therapy to regress most, if not all, solid tumours.
