"We want to find a self-optimizing control structure where acceptable operation under all conditions is achieved with constant setpoints for the controlled variables. More generally, the idea is to use the model off-line to find properties of the optimal solution suited for (simple, model-free) on-line implementation"

Feb. 2014: Interview with Sigurd in the Norwegian magazine Automatisering
July 2013: Sigurd elected Fellow of IFAC
Nov. 2012: Sigurd elected Fellow of AIChE
February 2012: Papers on "Improved SIMC method for PID control"
May 2011: Sigurd elected member of "Process Automation Hall of Fame"
