The ESCAPE series constitutes a major European yearly event in the area of compute raided process engineering (CAPE), where methods, algorithms, techniques and tools redeveloped and used to help the decision making process in the optimisation of the design and/or of operation of industrial processes, with, on average, over 200 participants perdition, from more than 50 countries. This series serve as a forum for bringing together European and International scientists, researchers, managers and engineers, from academia and industry, as well as students, to present and discuss progress being made in the area of CAPE. Previous editions took place in Denmark (1992, 2001), France (1992), Austria (1993), Ireland (1994), Slovenia (1995), Greece (1996), Norway (1997), Belgium (1998), Hungary (1999), Italy (2000), The Netherlands (2002) and Finland (2003). The steering of ESCAPE falls within the responsibility of the European Federation of Chemical Engineering through its working party on Computer Aided Process Engineering.
This proposal concerns the 14th edition of ESCAPE (ESCAPE-14), which will take place for the first time in Portugal (Lisbon), in May 2004, with a focus on five main leading themes: Product and Process Design, Synthesis and Process Integration, Process Control and Analysis, Manufacturing and Process Operations and New Challenges in CAPE.
The Marie Curie funds requested are aimed at a double goal:
(1) to ensure a very high standard to this 14th edition, in line with previous editions, in an European region where local sponsorship is less forthcoming,
(2) to ensure a balanced geographical participation of young researchers from across Europe (European Union and Associated Countries) and Overseas (USA, Canada and Latin America).
