  • Slovak University of Technology in Bratislava, Faculty of Chemical and Food Technology, Department of Inform. Eng. and Process Control (R. Paulen, M. Fikar, C. Valero, M. Mojto)
  • Institut National Polytechnique de Lorraine (INPL) - Ecole Nationale Sup√©rieure des Industries Chimiques (ENSIC) (M. A. Latifi, F. Lesage, Alexis Courtais, Fatima Mtamoros Marin)


The goal of this project is to enhance the cooperation of scientists who share common research interests in the development and application of advanced algorithms for design and control algorithms for dynamic systems in order to achieve greater energy- and material efficiency as well as safety of chemical production sites. The research team consists of students and professors with backgrounds in mathematics, process control and engineering. The scientific goals of the cooperation are to develop methodologies for shape optimization of production plants, effective parameter and state estimation of nonlinear dynamic systems, and techniques of optimal control. Software implementations will be delivered as a part of this project. Moreover, this project aims at a demonstration of the developed tools by applying them to laboratory chemical process systems, membrane filtration system and distillation column.
