CIRI reveal theme for 2019 Science Symposium

Thursday, January 10, 2019

“Understanding Effective Cleaning” has been announced as this year’s theme for the Cleaning Industry Research Institute’s 2019 Science Symposium, which will be held at  Miami University in Oxford, Ohio, July 15-17.

Science Advisory Council (SAC) chair, Steven Spivak, is spearheading the selection of the symposium’s technical agenda. Spivak said, “this theme reflects CIRI’s core competency. Methods, measurement and management are each critical elements required for effective cleaning, including disaster restoration. Those attending the 2019 symposium will gain a new and deeper understanding of these concepts that collectively define effective cleaning and restoration.”

“Equally important to CIRI is that science and research be practical and useful. In fact, we see the interrelationship of research and practice not only as essential but as a two-way street whereby better practices are examined and validated by research and research leads to still better practices.”

Australian-based Greg Whiteley will deliver the keynote presentation, “Anticipating Threats to Human Health.” CIRI has also issued a Call for Papers. Any individual or organization interested in presenting a technical or research paper at the 2019 CIRI Science Symposium is invited to contact CIRI executive director John Downey at 740-616-7248 or [email protected]

CIRI is a not-for-profit, educational, science and research organization in the worldwide professional cleaning, facilities, and building maintenance, jansan and disaster restoration industries.
