RENESENG

Objective

RENESENG aims to prepare a new generation of highly-qualified researchers in Biorefinery and biobased chemicals Systems Engineering Sciences in Europe, expected to bear high impact in the design of newly establishing industrial complexes in biorefinering and more generally in eco-industries. The effort requires to bring together academic and industrial teams, with particularly interdisciplinary and high-quality expertise, embracing disciplines in agricultural sciences, chemistry and chemical eng., biology and biotechnology, computer science, process engineering, logistics and business economics, as well as social sciences with an emphasis on life cycle analysis skills.
The principal scientific challenge of the network is to develop a program of inter-disciplinary research from expert groups with dedicated interests in biorenewables using a model-assisted systems approach as an integrating aspect, further capitalizing on its potential and role to address complex and large problems. The proposal brings state-of-the-art systems technologies mobilizing a critical mass in Europe that is already particularly active in this area but needs to coordinate the efforts and reduce fragmentation of knowledge. The aim is to develop and validate modelling, synthesis, integration and optimization technology addressing: 1)lignin-based and cellulosic processes2)water based paths to biomass production 3) waste treatment paths 4) combination of biorenewables processing with utilization of other renewable.
In parallel RENESENG has developed a program of training activities including, development of communication, business, and social skills, visits and social events allowing to prepare a new profile of researchers able to transmit their knowledge in the next networking teams. RENESENG guaranties high quality careers perspective for all, through the active participation of 6 industrials, the creation of spin-offs and the sustainable implementation of a multicenter PhD training program.
