The IFAC Industry Committee (IndCom)

Indcom aims to strengthen the engagement of industry and industry representatives in IFAC activities, enhance the value of IFAC to industry, help control research realize its full potential for industry impact and to ensure that research and education in academia is informed by industry perspectives

Starting from the 2017 World Congress in Toulouse (France), IFAC has established an Industry Committee (IndCom), reporting to the IFAC Council. The goals of the committee are to:

  • Strengthen the engagement of industry and industry representatives in IFAC activities
  • Enhance the value of IFAC to industry
  • Help control research realize its full potential for industry impact
  • Help research and education in academia be better informed by industry perspective

The committee currently numbers about 100 members, more than half of whom are affiliated with industry (most of the rest have had substantial industry experience over their careers). The Industry Committee welcomes additional members with significant industry experience.
