First ISP meeting_photo for PR news

The MORE R&D project has set up an Industrial Stakeholder Panel (ISP).

Members of this panel are nine external experts from various sectors of the European process industries such as pharmaceuticals, chemicals, refining, pulp and paper, steel and consumer products as well as the four industrial partners of MORE.

The panel members advise the MORE consortium with respect to promising research directions and possible dissemination activities from both, the industrial and the technological point of view, and provide comments and suggestions on possible impact and exploitation.

The external members of the ISP are involved as “active observers” in the project activities. They provide input on the definition and application of the novel real-time resource efficiency indicators in different industrial sectors and actively promote the future take-up of the results in the European process industry.

In order to extend the perimeter of the outreach activities and to get a multiplying effect, but to remain practical and concrete, the stakeholder panel consists mostly of responsible engineers or managers of producing companies who can provide practical assessments and ideas.

Identified REIs, first developments in real-time monitoring and optimization of resource efficiency in integrated processing plants and their transferability to other sectors have already been discussed, aiming at allowing flexible implementation in a broad range of sectors of the process industries.  Further requirements and inputs on the vision and needs of the ISP members are gathered.

All along the lifetime of the project, the Industrial Stakeholder Panel shall be kept informed about the project developments, will be consulted to update requirements and will get feedback on the project outputs.

This way, the project involves stakeholders from the chemical industry and from other process industries into the activities of the project and maximises the impact of the project findings.
