  2. Chemometrics
  3. Process performance monitoring
  4. Process Control

Projects that have the support of more than one CPACT member company are likely to be preferred and researchers should discuss proposals at an early stage with the CPACT Technical Director, Prof. Julian Morris (, or CPACT member company representatives (
