The Research Center for Pharmaceutical Engineering (RCPE) is a global leader in pharmaceutical engineering sciences. We help our partners to create and manufacture advanced medicines for patients around the world, through optimising products and processes. RCPE’s services encompass the entire value chain of pharmaceutical product development: continuous API synthesis, advanced formulations, next-generation manufacturing, and also device design and optimisation. As a non-profit, private company owned by Graz University of Technology, University of Graz and JOANNEUM RESEARCH Forschungsgesellschaft GmbH, we link outstanding science, application and industry in a business-oriented approach. RCPE is a K1 Competence Centre within the COMET programme, operated by the Austrian Research Promotion Agency (FFG).
Within the PHOENIX project, RCPE’s specific role is to develop a multiscale simulation framework for nanoparticle production processes. This framework is then utilised as digital simulation tool for process design, scale-up or optimisation.
