Malcolm McIvor was one of the key people in ICI who helped establish CPACT in 1997 and he played a prominent role in project supervision during the early stages of CPACT’s activities. Malcolm enjoyed his engagement with CPACT and has generously endowed a prize to be awarded annually to a researcher in recognition of that individual’s achievement in process analytics and control technologies. The prize will recognise excellence in terms of scientific achievement, creative thinking and/or engagement between academia and industry.
The CPACT Chairman and the selection panel, comprised of academic and industrial members of the CPACT Industrial Management Board, decided that the winner for 2020 would be Stephanie Cunliffe from the University of Manchester. Stephanie will give a presentation entitled ‘Optimisation of shampoo manufacturing using in-line process analytical techniques’ during the on-line CPACT Research Day session entitled ‘Advances in Process Analysis and Control from University-based Research’ on Monday 21st September 2020. Congratulations Stephanie!
