The Siemens PSE Model-Based Innovation Prize 2022

Recognising excellence in innovation

Siemens Process Systems Engineering is a pioneer in provision of advanced process modelling tools and services for the emerging technologies of Model-Based Innovation and Model-Based Engineering.

Our gPROMS® advanced process modelling software is widely used to provide quantification in support of academic research, particularly in areas of novel technology.

In acknowledgement of the role of gPROMS modelling in academic research, Siemens PSE offers annual prizes totalling €5000 for the best papers describing the use of gPROMS family products in an innovative way or in a novel area of application or technology.

Prize overview

  • We offer three Model-Based Innovation prizes: a winner's prize of €3000 and two runners-up prizes of €1000 each.
  • The research presented in the submitted papers should make substantial use of gPROMS modelling in order to achieve the results described.
  • The judges will favour novel applications or application in novel technology areas.
  • Each year the prize is announced at a key academic or industrial conference. This year's award maybe presented in at the AIChE Annual Meeting, Phoenix, AZ, USA subject to Siemens PSE's participation at the event.
  • In addition to awarding the prizes, Siemens PSE may invite the corresponding authors to present the paper at the next Siemens Process Systems Engineering Advanced Process Modelling Forum and to publish a summary page on the Siemens PSE website, depending on copyright and other considerations.
