On occasion of the EuroPACT Conference 2017 in Potsdam near Berlin, Germany, the German Joint Working Group „Prozessanalytik“ in cooperation with Siemens has awarded the 5th Siemens Process Analytics Prize to a young scientist for an outstanding publication in the field of Process Analytics. The prize is endowed with € 1.500. An EUROPACT 2015 prize committee has selected the winner.

The prize was awarded on May 12th, 2017 in Potsdam to Raffaele Vitale, Universitat Politècnica de València, Valencia, Spain for the outstanding publication in the field of process analytics

Abel Folch-Fortuny, Raffaele Vitale, Onno E. de Noord, Alberto Ferrer, “Calibration transfer between NIR spectrometers: New proposals and a comparative study” Journal of Chemometrics, 2017 (in Press),

This is a very accurate and thorough paper – a very comprehensible and excellent work with importance to the community. The subject is practical oriented and represents not only a simple application study. The subject is fully within a process analytical context. The publications clearly stands out from others in that field.
