Project ModuLA: Information from planning to operation | 06.02.2019
Linking all the Information from the planning and operation phases requires a continous and consistent information model for the entire life cycle. Project ModuLA started end of 2018 to work out the specifications for this integrated approach.

ENPRO once more at the PAAT meeting | 10.11.2015
This year presented the initiative ENPRO a large proportion of the scientific program of the Annual Meeting of ProcessNet Section "Process, Apartus- and Plant Engineering (PAAT)" on 16 and 17 November 2015 Bruchsal. Prof. Kockmann gave on Tuesday, 11/17/2015, an overview of the ENPRO idea and subsequently showed the individual projects their current results.

1st ENPRO day was a great success | 29.06.2015
On the 24.06.2015, over 50 experts from the ENPRO initiative met at DECHEMA in Frankfurt am Main, Germany, to discuss the latest results. A World Café was held during this meeting, debating the current developments and developing ideas for the further progress.
