Annual Industrial Consortium Meeting

Annual Industrial Consortium Meeting

CPSE hosts the Industrial Consortium Meeting annually for Company Members

CPSE’s fundamental commitment is to develop expertise over the whole range of process systems engineering and to develop mechanisms for the transfer of new technology to industry. Through the Industrial Consortium, the Centre provides a neutral platform for intercompany networking and benchmarking with some of the largest multinational companies. During the Industrial Consortium meeting, members are briefed on the current research in process systems and how they can apply it in their own company. Future predictions and where research could lead are also provided. The Consortium Meeting also enhances further opportunities for Industrial Members to meet all levels of researchers in CPSE, including: academic staff, researchers and students. 

The Annual Industrial Consortium Meeting will take place on 7th and 8th December 2017. The draft agenda is below. ‌To register, please complete the Registration Form ‌‌and email it to Miss Senait Selassie:
