André Mendes Carvalho, researcher at the ALGORITMI Center, was identified by the magazine Quality Progress of the American Society for Quality (ASQ) as one of the 40 professionals under 40 years old, in the Quality area, to follow by the technical and scientific community. For the researcher, “This distinction gives new prominence to the research and teaching work that I have been doing, highlighting not only the contributions to the area of Quality, but also the ability to motivate and inspire others.
And he adds: “It is a recognition of great importance as it creates a space for sharing new perspectives at a time of great industrial transformation. This recognition, focused on young professionals from around the world – from academia and industry – comes naturally with a great focus on the future of Quality, and on sharing the perspectives of this new generation. In this sense, I highlight my perspective for the future of the discipline, where I highlight the role of Quality not only in the organisational and commercial success of organisations, but also as a as a differentiating factor in the pursuit and organisational integration of sustainable development objectives.”
Despite its origin in the United States, ASQ is now a global organisation, present in more than 140 countries. It is responsible for the publication and technical and scientific journals such as Quality Progress, Quality Engineering, and Journal of Quality Technology.
