We have attracted a good number of entries for this year's Model-Based 
Innovation (MBI) Prize.

If you want to have a chance of winning the €3000 (EUR) prize or either of 
the two runners-up prizes of €1000 (EUR), you will need to submit your 
paper by 30 JUNE 2010. Late entries will not be considered.

All you need to do to be eligible for the prize is fill in the submission 
form at 
and send us a copy of the published paper. It is a very simple process.


PSE awards prizes totalling €5000 (EUR) for the best published papers in 
which the gPROMS advanced process modelling software is used to generate 
research results in a novel area of application or technology. We offer 
three prizes: a winner's prize of €3000 (EUR) and two runners-up prizes of 
€1000 (EUR) each.

The 2009 prize was won by a team from the Instituto Superior Técnico of 
Lisbon, Portugal comprising Raquel Durana Moita, Henrique A. Matos, 
Cristina Fernandes, Clemente Pedro Nunes and Mário Jorge Pinho for their 
paper “Dynamic modelling and simulation of a heated brine spray system”, 
published in Computers and Chemical Engineering in February 2009.


PSE is a pioneer in the emerging technology of Model-Based Innovation. Our 
gPROMS product is widely used in academic research, particularly in areas 
of novel technology, to provide quantification to support research results 
through the application of first-principles modelling.

2010 MBI prize

If you used gPROMS in support of research published or to be published 
between 1 July 2008 and 30 June 2010, you are encouraged to submit a paper 
for the 2010 prize. The research presented in the paper 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. The prize is open to applicants from industry as 
well as academia.

Submissions will be judged by the panel of three leading academics in the 
field of Process Systems Engineering: Professor Stratos Pistikopoulos 
(Imperial College London), Professor Rafiqul Gani (Technical University of 
Denmark) and Professor Michael Georgiadis (University of Western 
Macedonia, Greece). The prize will be awarded at the 2010 AIChE Annual 
Meeting in Salt Lake City.

More details on the prize, including guidelines for submission, can be 
found on the PSE website at, along with 
the rules, guidelines and terms and conditions.
