Researchers in the IMPROVISE project have received the IFAC Journal Paper Award

Journal Paper Award for researchers IMPROVISE Project


Two researchers in the IMPROVISE project have received the IFAC (International Federation of Automation and Control) Journal Paper Award. The award will be presented during the online awards session of the 21st IFAC World Congress in Berlin, Germany, on 12-17 July, 2020.

The IMPROVISE project demonstrates that dynamic simulation models play a significant role in the reduction of operational costs by use of the model based operation technology and decision making.  Assistant Professor Leyla Özkan leads the project consortium that involves Royal FrieslandCampina, Corbion and DSM.

Reflections on performance and computational aspects

Özkan received the Best Paper Award for the Best Survey paper published in the IFAC Journal of Process Control in the triennium 2017-2019. The Assistant Professor at TU/e wrote the survey paper together with her former PhD student Bahadir Saltik.

The paper is titled An outlook on robust model predictive control algorithms: reflections on performance and computational aspects.


This project is co-funded with subsidy from the Topsector Energie by the Ministry of Economic Affairs and Climate Policy.
