In cooperation with Cranfield University, the Engineering Research Network (EngRN) is pleased to announce the TESConf 2020 - 9th International Conference on Through-Life Engineering Services eJournal. This eJournal is available to all subscribers at no charge and contains abstracts of the meeting papers with links to the full text in the SSRN eLibrary.

On behalf of the TESConf 2020 International Scientific Committee and Organizing Committee, it is our great pleasure to welcome you to the proceedings of the 9th International Conference on Through-life Engineering Services (TES). This seasoned conference has served as a meeting point for the academic and industrial communities to address current and future industrial challenges in TES. This meeting welcomes contributions about the state-of-the-art technologies and the implementation of advances in the sustainable and economic management of high-value assets across their life cycle from design through to manufacturing, in-use and disposal.

This year, the COVID-19 pandemic has disrupted almost every aspect of our lives and the conference was migrated to a new digital platform. This edition of the conference included eight academic sessions, which covered the latest advances in TES. The sessions were designed to enhance understanding in how to connect different phases of the asset life cycle. This covers challenges, such as design for service, evaluating the impact of degradation, and understanding the sustainability implications of TES. Additionally, attendees enjoyed five keynotes from academics and industrialists representing different sectors. Six industrial workshops were also planned, offering interactive sessions in a range of topics ranging from skills requirements to technical solutions.
