Life Long Learning Intensive Course SCF-GSCE: Supercritical Fluids - Green Solvents in Chemical Engineering

I've found this information about the " Life Long Learning Intensive Course SCF-GSCE: Supercritical Fluids - Green Solvents in Chemical Engineering"
And I can't avoid to copy the info in the blog...

I attend the course in Istanbul in 2009, and inform in this blog about the course in 2010...
but I really don't know if it took place in 2011 and what is going to happen this year...

I'll try to get informed and post something! (If somebody knows something, comments are welcome! )

EU SOCRATES Intensive Programme
a graduate-student-level school
- High Pressure Technology in the Process and Chemical Industry -
HPT WP members at the WP annual meeting in Maribor, Slovenia 2001
The members of HPT WP of EFCE have promoted an intensive Course on high pressure technology in year 1995. Part of the funds for the course have been covered by EU in the frame ofSocrates Erasmus programme. Participating institutions and industrial participants also cover part of the costs. The participating universities and their lecturers are shown in table below. Nevertheless, the number of participating universities is increasing.

The members and recognised European experts both in theoretical aspects in the industrial applications of supercritical fluids present the following topics:
  • Thermodynamic properties
  • Phase equilibria
  • Transport properties
  • Unit operations for separation at high pressure
  • Hydrodynamics and mass transfer
  • Kinetics of high pressure chemical reactions
  • High pressure equipment
  • Separation of chiral compounds using supercritical fluids
  • Extraction of pharmaceutical plants
  • Supercritical extraction
  • Scale-up of superciritcal extraction units
  • Supercritical water oxidation
  • Precipitation of solids with dense gases
  • Enzymatic reactions
  • High pressure polymer processes
  • Ethylene polymerisation
  • Chemical Reactions in supercritical fluids
  • Sterilisation with high pressure
  • Pharamceutical applications with supercritical fluids
  • High pressure technology in material industry
  • Industrial size supercritical extraction
  • Hydrogenation processes at high pressure
Further practical applications of chemical and process applications are shown within the visits to industry of the hosting university.
Each year the course is held at a different participating university, and is attended by undergraduate and postgraduate students, PhD students, researchers and engineers from different faculties as well as industries.
1995 Monselice, France
1996 Nancy, France
1997 Erlangen, Germany
1999 Abano Terme, Italy
2000 Valladolid, Spain 
2001 Maribor, Slovenia/Graz, Austria 
2002 Graz, Austria/Maribor, Slovenia2003 Budapest, Hungary
2004 Barcelona, Spain
High Pressure Course in Maribor, Slovenia 2001
The course is organised by the hosting university and the number of participants is increasing each year (up to 50 participants).
Based on the lecture notes from the course, a book titled "High Pressure Technology: Fundamentals and Applications" was published in September 2001 by Elsevier. It is a first book on high pressure after 15 years.

I am from pharmaceutics background n working on partical generation using SCF. can anyone tell how helpful is this course for pharma students?
