Training

As well as the necessary technical advances to link advanced modelling and scientific fundamentals, effective uptake of the new digital design paradigm will require the pharma sector to take on board the concepts, possibilities and practice of digital design in the context of pharmaceutical development and manufacture. To that end, ADDoPT contains a significant element of training activity. We are building plans to deliver appropriately targeted training to process operators in advanced control and operation, to research technicians and scientists in data analytics and fundamentals, and to raise awareness in key stakeholders of the advantages of digital design methods,
