Abstract

Summarising the whole book, this chapter gives perspectives, derived from the EMMS research, on future directions, particularly, emphasizing the possibility of meso-science and the realization of VPE. The discussion here is limited to author’s capacity of knowledge and current understandings, only aiming at triggering further discussion in chemical engineering and beyond.
