TFI Network+ Workshop: Next generation and intelligent processes for the Foundation Industries

Tuesday 8th February 2022, 10:00-13:00


Register to attend

The Transforming Foundation Industries (TFI) Network+ is funded by EPSRC as part of the Industrial Strategy Challenge Fund to assist the wider academic and industrial community to exchange best practice and cross-fertilise ideas for the benefit of the six foundation industries: bulk chemicals, cement, ceramic, glass, metals and paper.

This workshop will present and discuss next generation and intelligent processes and their potential impact on the foundation industries. The workshop will encompass novel methods and instrumentation that reduce energy consumption, minimise waste and increase productivity within the Foundation Industries. Our speakers will address topics including advanced manufacturing, including automation, new challenges in data-centric engineering, new methods to acquire and analyse data, use of artificial intelligence and use of digital twins.


Dr Yukun Hu, University College London – ‘ Next generation and intelligent heating processes for the Foundation Industries’

Dr Alessandra Parisio, University of Manchester – ‘Modelling and optimisation-based control of flexible energy resources for sustainable energy systems’

Professor Julie McCann, Imperial College London – ‘Sensors for sustainability: discussing the advantages and challenges of instrumenting processes to track and save materials’

Professor Ashutosh Tiwari, University of Sheffield – ‘Digitalisation of skill-intensive manufacturing processes’

The workshop will also include breakout sessions for further discussion on the topics and will end with opportunity for the audience to ask the speakers any additional questions.
