IDENER at Dechema event in Frankfurt, 18th October 2018

On October 18 2018, the consortiums participating the COCOP, CoPro, FUDIPO and MONSOON projects celebrated a workshop in Frankfurt, in DECHEMA facilities. The event, which was titled “Digitized Operations for Sustainable Process Industries”, was a complete success and succeeded in bringing interested parties to it. Both the Project Officer Angelica Marino and the External Advisor also joined the event. During the sessions, the four participating projects explained how they were tackling the industry needs and which digital solutions they were building. Moreover, the time between sessions allowed for a great exchange of impressions and knowledge between the different participants, and also with the other entities that assisted to the event. Lastly, a panel named “Full digitalization of process operations – chances and challenges” took place. This panel was participated by Martin Winter (chair of SPIRE Digital Working group, A.SPIRE), Jane Arnold (Head of Global Process Control Technology, Covestro), Manuel Remelhe (Technology Senior Expert, BAYER AG) and André Augé (Statistical and data processing Manager, Rio Tinto / European Aluminium). During this panel, the experts presented their view on the future of the digitalisation of the industry and the public was able to raise questions and generate very interesting debates.
From IDENER, we would like to thanks the project coordinators of the four projects (Claudio Pastrone – MONSOON; Sebastian Engel – COPRO; Erik Dahlquist – FUDIPO; Matti Vilkko – COCOP) as well as all the people involved in the organisation for their efforts.
