The CAPE-OPEN 2002 award was presented to Michael Halloran (Aspentech), Daniel Pinol (Hyprotech) and Richard Szczepanski (Infochem) on February 4, 2003 during the CO-LaN Annual General Meeting held at BP in Sunbury.

This award recognizes their fruitful cooperation, across organizational borders, in the development of the Thermo 1.1 specification.

Their work showed how competing commercial companies could collaborate constructively on non-proprietary matters without compromising their commercial interests. This type of collaboration was essential to the progress CO-LaN has made in delivering interoperability and will continue to be essential in the future.
