The SCS Seminar series addresses topics of relevance in industrial R&D that are usually not covered in the academic curricula. The focus is on problem solving, actively involving the participants. The goal of the seminar series is to establish a link between academic and industrial research.

Catalysis Across Scales will embrace heterogeneous, homogeneous, and bio- catalysis and cover all stages of catalyst development from active site design to industrial process implementation. See Program for more details.

The body of instructors comprises thirteen experts, six of them from industry.

The participants will be actively involved in the program. Each lecture will be followed by an extensive discussion moderated by the session chairperson. Questions may be posted electronically during the lectures. In addition, teams of students working on practical challenges in catalysis, coached by the instructors, will be formed. The outcome of the work will be shared in short presentations.

This SCS seminar marks an excellent opportunity for scientists interested in catalysis to broaden their knowledge, to connect with experts in this field, to establish a network within the Swiss catalysis community, and to have a better understanding of industrial catalysis.
