Recognising excellence in innovation
Our gPROMS® advanced process modelling software is widely used to provide quantification in support of academic research, particularly in areas of novel technology.
In acknowledgement of the role of gPROMS modelling in academic research, PSE offers annual prizes totalling €5000 for the best papers describing the use of gPROMS family products in an innovative way or in a novel area of application or technology.
- We offer three Model-Based Innovation prizes: a winner's prize of €3000 and two runners-up prizes of €1000 each.
- The research presented in the submitted papers should make substantial use of gPROMS modelling in order to achieve the results described.
- The judges will favour novel applications or application in novel technology areas.
- Each year the prize is announced at a key academic or industrial conference. This year's award will be presented in at the AIChE Annual Meeting, Orlando, FL.
- In addition to awarding the prizes, PSE may invite the corresponding authors to present the paper at the next PSE Advanced Process Modelling Forum and to publish a summary page on the PSE website, depending on copyright and other considerations.
The call for submissions for 2019 is now closed.
