About Us:
The results that will be presented in this workshop have been developed by five EU-funded research projects: CONSENS, DISIRE, iCspec, ProPAT, and RECOBA. In these projects, 17 major corporations from diverse sectors of process industry have joined forces with more than 40 technology companies and with research institutes and universities to shape the future of plant operation. This became possible through the SPIRE Private Public Partnership, in which European Commission cooperates with the industry, shaping an R&D agenda according to the future needs of the European process industry.
The projects CONSENS, ProPAT, DISIRE, iCspec and RECOBA have received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme.
