Events - FUDIPO & COCOP final workshop - 11 March 2020, Sozialforschungsstelle (sfs) – TU Dortmund University, Evinger Platz 17, Dortmund, Germany

miércoles, 19 de febrero de 2020

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.
