Associate Professor Department of Industrial Engineering of the School of Engineering and Architecture - University of Bologna.

Cristina Mora, Ph.D., graduated with honors in Management Engineering and obtained her PhD from the University of Modena and Reggio Emilia. Since 2014 he is Associate Professor at the Department of Industrial Engineering of the School of Engineering and Architecture of the University of Bologna.

She is the holder of the courses of Advanced Production Systems M, Lean Management of Production Systems, Safety and Ergonomics of Production Systems at the master’s degree courses in Management and Mechanical Engineering.
Since 2016 he has been teaching at the Bologna Business School (BBS) in the following courses: Sustainable Supply Chain, as part of the Executive Master in Supply Chain and Operation (EMSCO), Sustainable Management of Operations, as part of the Executive Master in Sustainable and Business Innovation. She holds the following institutional positions: member of the Study Courses in Mechanical Engineering and Management Engineering of the School of Engineering of Bologna; member of the CIRI Interdepartmental Research Centre in Advanced Mechanics and Materials; member of the Italian Association of Professors of Industrial Mechanical Plants (AIDI); member of the PhD Board “Mechatronics and Industrial Systems” of the University of Padua.

Since 2018 she has been a member of the UNI Group UNI/CT 015 GL06 “Anthropometry and Biomechanics“; since 2019 he has been a member of the UNI/CT 042/GL59 group “Determination of workers’ exposure to chemical agents“, since 2021 he has been a member of the UNI/CT 042/SC 01/GL 16 group “Safety and health of wearable devices to facilitate work activities“.

She carries out research on the issues of planning, design, management and safety of production systems and industrial plants, with particular reference to Lean Manufacturing, Green and Sustainable Supply Chain Management and Ergonomic design and safety of production systems. In the context of these themes he collaborates with several international research centers (Curtin University -Australia; University of Windsor- Canada; DTU – Denmark). The result of this research has led to the drafting of over 100 scientific publications, published in national and international journals. She works as a referee for some international magazines in the sector.

She has participated and participates in several research projects funded by public bodies and private companies. Since 2014 he has coordinated the Banca delle Soluzioni working group, born from the collaboration between DIN and AUSL of Bologna, for the creation of a portal dedicated to the collection of Technical and Technological Solutions for the elimination or reduction of risk at work. From February 2016 to June 2019 he coordinated the project for the development of Confined Space App (CSA), the mobile application for the recognition of confined environments and / or suspicion of pollution. .



The stringent regulations in the field of emissions and recycling and the widespread awareness of the need to reduce the impact that the production and development system has on the planet and on humanity, makes more and more contemporary talk about sustainability and Supply Chain Sustainable.

The purpose of this workshop is to analyze the production system and the entire Supply Chain from the point of view of potential impacts on the environment and society and to present methods and tools for the analysis of sustainability and for the identification of the best Trade-off between efficiency and environmental sustainability, if in contrast, as well as enhancing any synergistic elements between these two drivers.
