Organised by the DECHEMA e.V. under the auspices of the EFCE








2nd European Forum on New Technologies




 1 March 2019, 8:30 - 16:00 h
Frankfurt, Germany


Purpose of the Meeting

Digitalisation has the potential to change the way we work in Chemical Engineering.  In particular it is likely to change the way the process industries work with the potential of big data and its analysis making the operations and the supply chain much more responsive.  It could also significantly change the innovation process in developing new products and processes.  What are the potential effects on sustainability, quality, safety, predictive capability and of course profitability?

What are the challenges and opportunities, and how can the EFCE and its Working Parties and Sections work together to address them?  How can we engage the European Chemical Engineering community, both academic and industrial?

The meeting will bring together some visionary speakers to set out the potential and the challenges. There will be the opportunity to discuss how to tackle these challenges, through discussion and through collaboration and application to funded programmes.



  • Vision for Digitisation in the Process Industry
  • The potential of Digitisation
  • The role of Digitalisation across the life cycle: in R&D, Design, and Operations
  • Round table discussions and potential outcomes include proposals, challenges, workshop ideas
