Summer School 2018
Catalysis and Energy: from Synthesis to Application
September 2nd – 7th, 2018

If you are a graduate student, a post-doctoral scientist, or a senior researcher, that the world of catalysis and its applications attracts you, then our Summer School is just the right place to go.

Format

Our summer school offers you a large panel of interesting lectures on basic research and specific catalytic topics presented by top scientists in their respective fields, but also gives you the opportunity to take part in inspiring practical sessions consisting of competitive and challenging team work.
Get the chance to present your own research activities and discuss about them with the lecturers and other participants during flash presentations and poster sessions. This will take place in a casual but nevertheless highly challenging atmosphere. Hard work will be rewarded. Great poster prizes and team work rewards are waiting for you.

Program

The Summer School will start with a spectacular experimental lecture on the afternoon of Sunday 2/9 and will finish on Friday afternoon 7/9. Further details about the program will be announced at a later date.
