Knowledge transfer

Knowledge transfer

PARTICLE-PRO will carry out a comprehensive knowledge transfer and training programme to effectively transfer knowledge from the RTD Performers to the participating SMEs and to the wider industry

Granulation control

Granulation control

PARTICLE-PRO aims at meeting the technological needs of European pharmaceutical manufacturers in terms of granulation control.

Industrial tests.

Industrial tests.

Once the PARTICLE-PRO system will be developed, it will be extensively tested to validate its performance under real industrial operation environments.

Project

PARTICLE-PRO aims to develop a system that is a hybrid of imaging-based physical characterization and NIR-Chemical Imaging technologies. Particles and granules play a key role in process efficacy and final product quality for industries such as pharmaceuticals, food, nutritionals and cosmetics.
