Welcome to ICEC 2014!

On behalf of AICE, the Italian Association for Total Cost Management, we are pleased to invite you to the IX World Congress of ICEC, the International Cost Engineering Council, to be held in Milan (Italy) from the 20th to the 22nd of October, 2014.

Total Cost Management in Difficult Times

The focus of this year’s Congress is on the various aspects of Total Cost Management which can be exploited in the practical dimension of use and be considered as possible leverages for overcoming or counteracting the present serious worldwide economic crisis.

The main topic of the Congress will investigate how TCM application can contribute to business development in a sustainable way. Other research paths will be relevant to certification, compared to other certificates, and to professional methodologies, best practices and standards.

We expect this will be an excellent opportunity to continue the ICEC tradition of fostering international exchange and promoting excellence in our profession, in a friendly and supportive environment.
