CPAC has an established track record in fostering academic / industrial / national laboratory interactions, which aims at bridging the gap between basic research and full-scale process / product development.

The APL/CPAC workshop at the UW Rome Center is held for the purpose of bringing together US and European scientists and engineers of similar expertise in the field of micro-instrumentation. The goal is to catalyze transatlantic collaborations in the areas of micro-reactors and the related enabling technologies of sampling and micro-analytical technologies, with an emphasis on bio-technologies.

The workshop will provide continuing educational opportunities in the areas of Micro-Instrumentation (Micro-Reactor, Micro-Analytical, Micro-Separations, etc.), Process Intensification (Flow Chemistry, Separations, Environmental, Energy Reduction), and Future Chemical Factories (Process Control, Scale-Out and Modularity). It will be a forum for presenting and discussing advances in continuous unit operations and measurement sciences linked to improved process control incorporating Quality by Design (QbD) approaches in pharmaceutical applications. The presentations will include challenges in the selected areas, case studies, and new technical advances including emerging applications for NeSSI™ (New Sampling/Sensor Initiative).

Monday afternoon, Tuesday, and Wednesday morning will focus on the impact of micro-instrumentation to achieve the goals of Process Intensification for assessing New Manufacturing Platforms based on the value of continuous flow processing. Wednesday afternoon and Thursday morning will feature aspects of Process Optimization for Achieving REACH Compliance and Green Chemistry attributes including reduced energy and environmental impacts.

Workshop attendees include: industrial ‘end-users’, government scientists and engineers, instrument manufacturers, and academic researchers.

FORMAT

The Satellite Workshop will be held over four days - beginning at 13:30 on Monday, March 19, and ending at 12:00 on Thursday, March 22. The Workshop Presentations will serve as a basis for open discussions with a futuristic outlook toward the technology presented and its impact on the future of Process Analytical Technology (PAT). The official language for the workshop will be English.

An informal reception for the Satellite Workshop attendees who are already in Rome will be held on Sunday.
