Industry 4.0, Plant of the Future, Factory of the Future, Smart Factory... all terms that refer to the industry of tomorrow.
However, how is the industry being transformed? Are the process industries taking ownership of this change and looking to the future? How is this evolution of the process industries impacting chemical engineering as a discipline?

The two half-­day events will provide participants with both a broad and precise vision of the future of the process industries. It will address the place of the industry in today’s society, new ways for process design and shifts in the operation of processes, as well as how training of students, technicians and engineers may need to be rethought to meet these new needs.
