Events - IMPROOF Workshop - 16th Global Congress on Process Safety - 29 March...
20 Feb 2020 at 4:00pm
IMPROOF is a European Union Horizon 2020 project, which aims to improve the energy efficiency of steam cracking furnaces while reducing emissions of greenhouse gases and NOx.
This workshop is organized by the IMPROOF consortium, registration is open for all stakeholders from both industry and academia.
There will be a free workshop to share the results of the work.
It is scheduled to coordinate with the 32nd Ethylene Producers Conference.
The Event will be at The Marriott Marquis Houston, 1777 Walker St. Houston. Attendance is free of charge, but registration is required.
Events - FUDIPO & COCOP final workshop - 11 March 2020, Sozialforschungsstell...
18 Feb 2020 at 4:00pm
The European Research and Innovation projects COCOP (Coordinating Optimisation of Complex Processes) and FUDIPO ( FUture DIrections of production Planning and Optimized energy- and process industries ) organizes their final workshop.
The objective of the workshop is to present the EU perspective on digital operations in process industries and discuss about plant-wide monitoring & control of data-intensive processes, the scope of SPIRE-02-2016 projects.
COCOP and FUDIPO will present their vision, objectives, approach and the solutions implemented for different process industry (Steel, Copper, Pulp & Paper, Oil Refining, Heat and Power plants and Waste-Water treatment), evaluating their impact on quality and resources/energy efficiency and analysing their transferability to other sectors.
Moreover, CoPro, MONSOON and MORSE projects, all working in similar areas, will be also present in the meeting, providing insight on their projects. As a direct consequence, we will gather in this event some of the latest advances done within SPIRE in improving the efficiency of the process industries through advanced control and optimisation.
Attendance at the workshop is free but the numbers are limited. Please, register before 14th February. Registration is available online.
Events - Innovative Europe: The Way Forward. Taking Stock and Thinking Ahead ...
21 Jan 2020 at 4:00pm
Climate change, digital revolution and demographic trends are transforming European economy and society, defining huge challenges for the industrial ecosystem and deeply affecting citizens’ way of life. The next five years will be crucial to set the Europe’s role on the world stage: as outlined in the President von der Leyen’s Political Guidelines, the new EU leadership is called to adopt and implement a wide set of very ambitious policies, that will enable the EU to lead the transition to a healthy planet and a new digital world and to remain innovative and competitive at global level.
I-Com will organise on February 18 (h14:30 – h18:45) at The Office in Brussels (Rue d‘Arlon 80) the Public Conference “Innovative Europe: The Way Forward. Taking Stock and Thinking Ahead”.
The event will give the floor to EU institutions, trade and consumer associations, companies, civil society organisations and other relevant stakeholders to discuss the future agenda for an Innovative Europe through three different panels – Setting the Future Digital agenda, Connecting EU Health and Industrial Policies and Towards the European Green Deal – designed to reflect the main political guidelines of the new European Commission.
Innovative Europe: The Way Forward is the final event of the I-Com 2019/2020 Brussels Flagship Initiative Back to the Future. Therefore, the conference will be the occasion to present the I-Com Blueprint and a related Manifesto, which finally aim at informing the new EU institutions about the state of innovation in three sectors (Digital, Healthcare and Energy & Mobility) and making recommendations for the new institutional cycle to contribute to a social and economic agenda oriented to innovation.
