It is funded by the Industrial Research Fund of the KU Leuven, and co-financed by Essenscia, the Belgian federation for the chemical and life sciences industry.</p>\r\n<p>SCORES4CHEM supports the industry to further strengthen its competitive position by answering the growing need for Advanced Data Mining and Advanced Process Control, often in conjunction with process safety. In this presentation the \"Research\", \"Education\" and \"Services\" components of the</p>\r\n<p>platform will be illustrated. As for the \"Education\" component, in November 2009 the Chair Essenscia \"Safety Engineering\" was founded at the KU Leuven.
