This first edition of Catalysis Connected will take place 24-27 August 2019. The programme consists of plenary sessions with keynote speakers and a poster session. To have ample room for discussion lectures will last 30 minutes + 30 minutes discussion. On Sunday and Monday there will be a joint ‘recreational/community building’ activity to discuss and meet each other in an informal setting.
