The German Catalysis Meeting has established itself as one of the most important European catalysis events, covering all aspects from research on the fundamentals of catalysis, the understanding of catalytic processes, catalyst design to reaction engineering and industrial applications. More than 600 experts from universities, research institutes and industry meet annually to present their research, exchange their ideas and share new developments and the latest results in all areas of catalysis. By expanding the onsite meeting in Weimar with novel virtual and hybrid formats, the event will offer even more opportunity for interaction and scientific exchange.
The conference has a double focus: To highlight state-of-the art research and development from theory to application, and to provide an opportunity for young scientists to present their scientific results, discuss their research with academic peers and build and expand a professional network. For the 2021 edition, renowned plenary speakers from academia and industry have been invited, setting additional highlights in the scientific programme of the conference. Presentations will be organized in two parallel sessions throughout the event so that all fields of catalysis will be addressed. An industrial exhibition and several poster workshops will accompany the scientific programme.
The "Katalytikertreffen" started as a small meeting of individual researchers in East Germany, who discussed catalytic results and commenced initial collaborations with industry. Today it has become one of the hotspots for the European catalysis community, stimulated by the special atmosphere in the beautiful and historically important town of Weimar.
So do not hesitate and join us to discuss recent academic and industrial innovations of catalysis research. Save the date and prepare your contribution! We look forward to meeting you in March 2021 in Weimar.
Depending on the development of the corona pandemic, we reserve the right to decide to hold the annual meeting online if necessary.
Please submit proposed contributions in the form of a two page abstract (max. 1 MB)
The conference language is English.
Please only use the conference template to correctly format your contribution.
