Process Systems Enterprise (PSE), the provider of the gPROMS Advanced
Process Modelling environment, is a pioneer in the emerging technology of
gPROMS 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.
In acknowledgement of the growing application of first-principles
modelling in research, PSE is pleased to announce an annual €5000 Euro
(about US$7500) prize for the best paper describing the use of gPROMS in
an innovative way or in a novel area of application or technology.
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

Denmark) and Professor Michael Georgiadis (University of Western
More details on the prize can be found on the PSE website at
