Registration (free of charge)

When & where: 3 October 2017 – 8.30am or 11.30pm and from 4pm till 7pm @ WCCE10 conference (room E8), in Barcelona (

To give you an idea about AceForm4.0, Darren Ragheb (Strategic Programmes Manager, from the Centre for Process Innovation, UK) will give a presentation in the morning (8.30am and 11.30am) about the project and its first results: “A unique opportunity to influence EU funding for Innovation across the Formulating Industries”

In the afternoon (4pm to 7pm) participants will be introduced to the main challenges of formulation scale-up in the chemical industry and discover case studies presented by experts. Next, an Industry4.0 expert will present and develop the potential solutions brought by digital technology to solve formulation scale-up challenges.

Confirmed speakers for the afternoon:

  • Jens Uhlemann from Bayer : “Challenges in Formulation scale-up”
  • Paul Poelmans from Verheart: “Introduction to Industry4.0”

During the second part of the workshop, there will be time to exchange ideas and brainstorm in small groups with stakeholders from different formulation sectors (pharmaceuticals, paints, cosmetics, consumer products…). The question to be answered: How can your formulation scale-up issues be solved by Industry4.0 and new technologies?

This workshop is part of a European networking project AceForm4.0. The project’s aim is to establish a European formulation community with strong internal connections and generate a common roadmap that influences European calls for funding in the fields of Industry4.0 (or digitalisation) and Circular economy during the next 15 years.

The workshops are one of the key actions in the project and a unique opportunity for participants to open their horizons to new R&D perspectives.
