The aim of this workshop is to bring together representatives from both academia and industry in order to determine mathematical challenges of common interest, to improve and integrate process control solutions for applications across various industries, and to foster synergies and collaborations. As a global player in polymer industry BASF will provide experiences and challenges.
The workshop is also dedicated to the EU-funded research project RECOBA (https://www.spire2030.eu/recoba/). The objective of the project is to increase efficiency of batch processes regarding quality, energy, raw materials, costs while it is focusing on the cross-sectorial applicability of developed sensors, optimization and control methods. Within the consortium of academic partners, industrial development partners and industry partners besides polymer industry there are also involved global players from steel and silicon industry.
