Process analysis and control technologies are increasingly important to manufacturing companies in the pharmaceuticals, chemicals, petrochemicals, biotechnology, food and other industries.
The financial, safety and environmental benefits of Process Analysis and Control (PAC) are proving powerful incentives and increasing numbers of companies want to participate in the PAC revolution.
In-process measurements and real-time data analysis are also increasing in importance at the discovery and development stages, when attempting to reduce time-to-market through “quality by design”, achieved by acquisition of better fundamental knowledge of a process.
APACT is an open forum for the presentation and discussion of recent advances in engineering and scientific topics relevant to process analytics and control technologies. Plenary and keynote speakers describe the formulation and implementation of PAC strategies, review the benefits that can be achieved, and report recent developments. An instrument exhibition and full social programme are also included.

CPACT established the triennial EUROPACT conference with the German Chemical Society and DECHEMA in 2008.
We have held four successful events to date. The first conference was held in 2008 in Germany, the second in 2011 in Glasgow, the third took place in Barcelona in 2014 and the fourth took place in Berlin in May 2017. The next event was due to take place on 18-20th May 2020 in Copenhagen, however, due to Covid-19 this has now been postponed. Once a new date has been finalised, details will be posted at: EUROPACT2020
Quote from attendee at Europact: "I believe the ‘Euro’ aspect worked extremely well, with a large and cosmopolitan attendance".
