Membership Benefits

Our membership benefits include:

  • A pool of expertise across twelve Universities and Research Institutes and more than two dozen industrial member companies
  • Well-trained recruits at PhD and Post Doctoral levels
  • Free short Feasibility Studies to be carried out by CPACT academics and researchers  

Feasibility studies could be based on a wide range of questions: e.g. assessing a new instrument or instrumental method for process applications,

assess some process or process analytical data to provide the company with additional information /know-how on their processes or products, compare

different data analysis methods for particular applications, or carry out a literature evaluation to assess the current status of a developing technology relevant

to process analysis or process control.  These are just a few examples and it would be up to individual companies to suggest the type of brief study that might

be of benefit to them.
