Dr. Tomohiko Sakao
Professor of Sustainable Product/Service Systems
Tomohiko Sakao is Professor in Ecodesign and Integrated Product Service Engineering at the Division of Environmental Technology and Management, Department of Management and Engineering, at Linköping University (LiU) in Linköping, Sweden. He stayed at the Institute for Product Development and Machine Elements at the Darmstadt University of Technology in Darmstadt, Germany between 2005 and 2007.
Dr. Sakao joined LiU as the Swedish engineers’ (Sveriges Ingenjörer) Environmental Professor in 2007 and have been active in both carrying out projects with industry and publishing academic articles. He is one of the scholars that have published highest numbers of relevant articles in the area of product/service system worldwide, which is clear evidence of his academic influence and expertise in the field.
Since 2016, he has been elected as Associate Member of CIRP (The International Academy for Production Engineering).
After studying at the University of Tokyo, Dr. Sakao worked at Mitsubishi Research Inst., Inc. in Tokyo for 8 full years, where he gained valuable industry experience before beginning his academic career.
Keynote Title: Engineering systemic changes towards circular economy
A summary of the keynote:
This speech will discuss impacts of and adaptation to much needed transformation towards a circular economy from engineering standpoints based on the speaker’s own recent research. Systemic changes are much needed in engineering research and innovation towards a circular economy. First, cases of circular economy business models will be introduced. Then, the speaker will share insights concerning following questions. How could design of product and services be better achieved. What knowledge is additionally needed in design? How could governmental policies impact on engineering on these contexts? How could remanufacturing processes be efficiently managed? How could digitalisation be adopted as enablers?

Raphael Grzebieta, PhD
Emeritus Professor (Road Safety)
Transport and Road Safety (TARS) Research Centre
School of Aviation
University of New South Wales
Topic: Occupational Safety and Health (OSH)
Raphael graduated in 1979 with BE (Hons) and M.Eng.Sci. degrees from Krakow Technical University, Poland and a PhD in 1991 from Monash University, Australia. He is Emeritus Professor of Road Safety within the Transport and Road Safety (TARS) Research Centre (previously the NSW Injury Risk Management Research Centre (IRMRC)) at the University of New South Wales (UNSW) and was the IRMRC’s Acting Director in 2008. He is also an Adjunct Professor in the Department of Forensic Medicine at Monash University and the Victorian Institute of Forensic Medicine located at the Victorian Coroner’s Court Precinct. He was previously in the Department of Civil Engineering at Monash University for 25 years, where as an Associate Professor he headed up Civil Engineering’s road-safety, crashworthiness and rapid loading research team and supervised numerous PhD, Masters and project students. He has over 350 publications in structural crashworthiness research, accident investigation, road safety, road and infrastructure design, injury causation and biomechanics, ambulance crashworthiness, failure analysis, numerical modelling and experimental testing of a variety of structures subjected to impact and large deformation loads.
He has carried out over 200 in-depth crash investigations and accident reconstruction analyses, providing expert reports and evidence in court. His latest cases have been for the Queensland, NSW, Victorian and New Zealand Coroners, NSW and Victorian Departments of Public Prosecutions, NSW Police, Victoria Police and Victorian WorkCover Authority as well as a number of cases for the CTP Insurers. He has also been involved and worked on major road safety projects (includes one or all of Safer Vehicles, Safer Roads, Safer People and Safe Speeds analyses, advice and reports) for: Cargill Worldwide in Indonesia; Pan Aust Mining in central Laos; BHP-Escondida Mine in Chile; World Bank under contract to the Romanian Ministry of Transport and the Lithuanian Ministry of Transport; United Nations and the Kuwait Ministry for Transport; Australian Defence Department; SafeWork NSW; WorkCover Victoria; VicRoads; Telstra; and a number of private Engineering firms.
The university research team he headed up at Monash carried out numerous crash tests, computer crash modelling and theoretical studies investigating and mitigating injuries in truck under-run, far-side impact, rollover, roadside barrier crashes and industrial work places. Raphael has supervised/co-supervised to completion 17 PhD and 4 MEngSci students in the area of vehicle crashworthiness, injury biomechanics, rapidly loaded and grossly deforming steel structures and truck safety. He developed and taught the most rigorous and theoretically demanding subjects in Civil Engineering for over 20 years. His research work attracted around $8 million in Australian Research Council and Australian National Health and Medical Research Council grants and a further $4 million in other university based contract research work.
Raphael was the past President of the Australasian College of Road Safety. He is also a member of a number of road safety, editorial, journal and standards committees. Raphael is regularly interviewed by radio and TV media and has appeared in science programs in relation to road safety and crash testing. He has also chaired a number of international conferences and given numerous invited public lectures and keynote papers. His international network in vehicle and roadside crashworthiness is extensive. Raphael was awarded the 2003 Warren Medal by the Institution of Engineers Australia, as co-author of the papers “Crashworthiness Systems – A Paradigm Shift in Road Safety Design”, Parts I & II. He was also awarded in 2007 Fellow of the Australasian College of Road Safety in recognition of his exceptional international service to road safety. He was awarded the 2019 Kenneth Stonnex Award for his 30-year career improving safety for road users by the US National Academies of Sciences, Engineering and Medicine’s Transportation Research Board’s (TRB’s) Roadside Safety Design Committee AFB20, is given to engineers and road safety experts who have dedicated their career to advancing transportation infrastructure and making roads safer. More recently he was awarded the Australian Road Research Board’s (ARRB) national transport research organisation’s 2019 Lifetime Research Award and Engineers Australia Sir John Holland Civil Engineer of the Year Award for 2020 in recognition of his outstanding achievements in Civil Engineering.
