Summary on Grant Application Form
The objective of the Network is to promote and catalyse the interactions and linkages between scientists and engineers in analytical science, chemometrics, process engineering control and optimisation for the solution of industrial motivated process manufacturing challenges. The Network will encapsulate expertise from academe, industry and government laboratories by building on the existing membership of the Foresight Centre for Process Analytics and Control Technology (CPACT) and the Specialised Organic Chemicals Sector Association (SOCSA). The Network also aims to contribute to the industrial take-up and roll-out of process analytics and control technologies for the achievement or retention of competitive advantage. A key aim will be to catalyse new multidisciplinary research and academic-industry collaborations in areas related to process analytics/control, advanced chemometric tools and multivariate data analysis. To achieve the development of new technologies, members of the Network will come together to undertake research activity in the areas of on-line/in-line techniques for process analysis and control; data analysis and interpretation techniques, i.e. the integration and interpretation of information from multiple sources for environmental analysis and monitoring and responsive processing. Dissemination of the Network activities will be accomplished through a number of initiatives including technology surveys, demonstrator studies, technology transfer Workshops and organised site visits, research workshops and publications.
