Modern Concepts in Catalysis: From Science to Engineering - The South-West-German Catalysis Course (Südwestdeutscher Katalyse-Lehrverbund)

- Der nächste Kursus findet statt: 19.09.2022 - 23.09.2022 -

- The next course will take place: 19.09.2022 - 23.09.2022 -

The newly established Southwest German Catalysis Catalysis Course took place for the first time from September 23-27, 2019 in the Seminarhotel Odenwald in Höchst-Hassenroth. The one-week intensive course with 24 participants and 17 lecturers (6 of them industry representatives) bridged the gap between current highlights in catalysis research with methodological focuses and contemporary industrial applications. The following 2 years we had to reduce the number of participants. This year we plan the normal PhD course style again! We look forward to your participation.

This year's course will take place in Pirmasens from 19.09.2022 - 23.09.2022: The number of course participants is limited to 25 - 30 participants. If you are interested in the course, please contact Prof. Dr. Jan-Dierk Grunwaldt or any of the other organizers at TU Darmstadt, TU Kaiserslautern or KIT.

General

Invitation

We invite you to the fourth launch of the South-West-German Catalysis Course. The course deals with different topics and aspects in catalysis using technically relevant examples. These include preparation, high throughput synthesis, modern characterization techniques, modelling & simulation and different reactor concepts. Topical subjects are synthesis chemistry, power-to-X, electrocatalysis, renewable raw materials and current industrial processes. The course is rounded off by insights into practical applications.

Who shall participate?

PhD and master students working or interested in the field of catalysis. The one week „intensive“ course and limited number of participants gives a unique chance to get in touch with other young scientists and industrial representatives within the field of catalysis. Don’t miss the chance to broaden your knowledge beyond your own field of research and to get connected with the catalysis community.
