MDH attended HARMONI SUMMIT joint event in Brussels, 16-17 January

The HARMONI SPIRE H2020 project organised a joint event on 16-17 January called “HARMONI summit”. The objective of this meeting was to encourage the dialogue on an effective framework to facilitate and foster the innovation in EU industries. More than 150 experts engaged in the exchange of ideas coming from all sectors of the process industry.

One of these experts was Erik Dahlquist from MDH, who is the FUDIPO project coordinator. Thus, our coordinator gave a presentation of FUDIPO project and had a panel discussion about how to commercialize the innovations and results of EU projects.

Our colleagues Elena Tomas-Aparicio (Mälarenergi), Christian Wallin (MDH) and Nathan Zimmerman (MDH) attends Data Innovation Summit 2019

The last 14-15th March our colleagues from MDH and Mälarenergi attended Data Innovation Summit 2019, in order to keep up with the latest technology in Applied Innovation, Analytics and Visualisation, Machine Learning, Artificial Intelligence, Data Management, Data engineering, and IOT insight. FUDIPO apply this innovative technology for the energy and resource efficiency in EU industries.

FUDIPO at Dechema event in Frankfurt, 18th October

On 18th October (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.

Some presentations by FUDIPO as the one of Moksadur Rahman titled “Advanced Control of Continuous Pulp Digesters” took place presenting results about specific study case.

FUDIPO at SPIRE Industry 4.0 – Brussels, 1-2 October 2018

FUDIPO was present in the SPIRE workshops that took place at the beginning of October. Once again we did not miss the opportunity to present the progress in the FUDIPO project, presenting a poster during both sessions and discussing the project strategies.

During the workshop about Digital Technologies in Process Industry on the 1st of October, we confirmed that the optimisation and control tasks which are in current development in FUDIPO are completely aligned with the needs of a Process Industry. It is currently demanding stronger Digitalization of the production processes and innovations in the optimization methods, searching for more efficiency in the production, in the use of raw materials and in energy consumption and reduction of CO2 emissions.

Those objectives will be reinforced and extended in the SPIRE vision for 2050 of an “integrated and digital European process industry fostering a ‘well below 2ºC’ scenario and a fully circular future for our planet and society”. Once again, the main goals of FUDIPO project share in many aspects the value proposition of the future SPIRE 2050 and we keep working to make them come true.

FUDIPO at SPIRE thematic workshops on Brussels about sustainable industry

Two SPIRE workshops will take place on the 1st and 2nd of October 2018 at Brussels:

“Towards Industry 4.0: Digital Technologies in Process Industry”, which intends to explore different digitalisation related sub-topics, such as plant and process control, process design, artificial intelligence and big data, platforms for industrial symbiosis, digital skills, etc. SPIRE projects will give some presentations, as well as experts in the fields.

– Stakeholder workshop: “Sustainable Process Industry Strategy Towards 2050”, which aims to review and validate the SPIRE 2050 Vision, establish collaborative agreements with the Member States and other contractual public-private partnerships (cPPPs), and provide the place to develop the SPIRE 2050 Roadmap.

Idener, on behalf of FUDIPO, will attend this event and will hang a poster about the project, solving doubts and giving information to interested people.

Digitized Sustainable Process Industry workshop in Frankfurt, 18th October 2018

FUDIPO is participating in Digitized Sustainable Process Industry workshop in Frankfurt, on 18th October 2018. This workshop is also co-organised by COCOP, Monsoon, and CoPro SPIRE funded projects.

The workshop presents the EU perspective on digital operations in process industries and focuses on plant-wide monitoring and control of data-intensive processes. Also, a networking space is planned.

The event is free-registration but the number of participants is limited. More info soon.
