The research activities of the institute are focused on challenging problems in chemical process engineering, bioprocess engineering, process systems engineering, systems biology, and systems theory. This objective does not only require the development and application of Process Engineering and Systems Engineering approaches but also the establishment of new Computational Methods and advances in Systems Theory.

At first Michael KRASNYK represented MPI in CO-LAN. In May 2015, Dr DANKER was named the representative of MPI.

As of January 1, 2021, MPI is an Associate Member in Group C as per the bylaws adopted on October 15, 2020.

CAPE-OPEN related activities

MPI tested, together with Universität Stuttgart, the performance of the CAPE-OPEN Equation Set Object interfaces implementation in gPROMS when called from DIVA, a numerical solver with advanced continuation methods. The study was presented at ESCAPE-12 and published as: Mangold M., Mohl K.D., Gruner S., Kienle A., Gilles E.D. (2002). Nonlinear analysis of gPROMS models using DIVA via a CAPE ESO interface.  Computer Aided Chemical Engineering, 10 (C), pp. 919-924.

The development of Diana made efficient use of the CAPE-OPEN numerical interfaces. Diana provides numerical resolution services to models expressed as Equation Set Objects (ESO), the CAPE-OPEN representation of a model as a set of equations. Michael KRASNYK defended his Ph.D. in 2008 on Diana development and application. Ever since Diana has been extensively used at MPI.
