The proposed project will develop novel approaches to the design of industrial process control systems with four unique features:
1. Energy efficiency of the operated plants via advanced control;

2. Guaranteed safety of the control loop with a certifiable satisfaction of safety requirements;

3. Security of the closed loop against attacks from outside and from inside; and

4. Applicability on existing process control hardware without the need of costly upgrades.

The main aim of the project is to develop a systematic and universal design procedure that will yield safe and secure control systems in new applications (so-called greenfield setups), as well as for existing setups (so-called retrofits). This will open the door to industrial applications that will benefit from most progressive techniques for improving the safety, security, and economic performance in process industries.
