For the 28th CIRP LCE conference, we would like to welcome you to the UNESCO Heritage city Jaipur – the Pink City of India – known for its iconic architectural legacy and vibrant colourful culture. Under the motto „Engineers for global sustainability”, we are aiming at engaging and empowering the participants to take the needed actions that lead to the development of technologies to foster sustainability worldwide and to make “business as unusual” the new usual. We, technologists, have the capacity to engineer the change we need. We look forward to receiving many interesting and novel papers and welcome participants from all over the world, both inside and outside the CIRP community to join us at the CIRP LCE 2021 in Jaipur, India!
