European Lean Educator Conference 2015

The Second European LEAN EDUCATOR Conference will be held September 16 to 18 in Södertälje (close to Stockholm).  The focus of ELEC is to provide a platform for professors, teachers, coaches and trainers from academia, industry and government organizations to share their knowledge and experiences and learn from one another.

We see three areas where we invite you to submit your call for presentation.

  1. Lean application: The definition and description of the application of lean is changing. As always it is important to share not only experiences but also failures and differences in opinion here. Sharing knowledge here will further develop the understanding and practical application of lean.
  2. Innovation in Lean education: How can we educate and train better and different in lean with the purpose of creating a more effective and sustainable lean practice.
  3. Lean in education: How can the actual education process be improved through lean thinking & practice?

If you would like to submit a presentation, or need any other information, please follow the link to
