Patricia Lago joins the Scientific Steering Commitee of ASI

May 1, 2019

Patricia Lago, Professor of Software Engineering and Sustainability at the VU Amsterdam has joined the Scientific Steering Committee for the Amsterdam Sustainability Institute (ASI)

The Amsterdam Sustainability Institute (ASI) provides an inclusive umbrella for sustainability-related research at Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam. Inspired by the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), ASI seeks to build bridges among VU researchers and with the wider community to increase its scientific and societal impact.

As a full professor of software engineering and sustainability since 2015, Patricia Lago aims to contribute to software that makes society better, smarter and more sustainable. With the ever increasing role of software and digitalization in all aspects of the society, she believes we should ensure that sustainability goals are considered by all stakeholders, from decision makers to the citizen, and throughout the whole software lifetime, from inception to disposal.

Sustainability goals can be of economic, technical, environmental, and social nature; they can be considered over time and in different contexts. Patricia’s research in particular focuses on the architecture design of complex software intensive systems, their sustainability-quality assessment and actual measurement and monitoring when software solutions are in use.

The official opening of ASI will be Thursday 16 May, 15:00-17:00, at the VU Amsterdam.
