Welcome Prof. Hanf and M. Sc. Rang to our CRC!

With her proposal “Support engineering for the stabilization of single-atom catalysts”, Jun.-Prof. Dr. Schirin Hanf (IOC, KIT) won the CRC1441 call “Promotion and association of new junior group research leaders”. We are very happy to welcome Prof. Hanf and M.Sc. Fabian Rang to our CRC and look very much forward to new collaborations and insights to single atom catalysts!

Newly funded project A6

Jun. Prof. Yolita Eggeler is now part of our CRC! The newly funded project A6 started in 07/2022. In this project, analytical in situ environmental scanning electron microscopy will be combined with transmission electron microscopy and thus will expand the scale bridging approach by closing the gap between the nano- and mesoscale TEM. Welcome on board!

Visit of Mercator Fellow Prof. Dr. Alessandra Beretta

We were very happy that Mercator Fellow Prof. Dr. Alessandra Beretta visited our groups at KIT starting from the 11.7.2022! The scientific exchange with the Casapu, Deutschmann, Grunwaldt, Dittmeyer and Behrens group triggered many fruitful discussions, which will continue over the next weeks. We now look forward to Mercator Fellow Prof. Dr. Silvia Gross, who will be at KIT end of July, and also for Mercator Fellow Prof. Dr. Christian D. Damsgaard, who has announced to visit KIT in Autumn 2022

With over 40 stunning talks, 113 beautiful posters and nearly 250 participants, the CataLysis Networking Conference 2022 was a huge success! We hope that many of the fruitful and vivid discussions will contribute to further exchange between the CRCs/TRRs. Thanks to all participants, chair persons, the microphone helpers, the La Strada Team and also JS Medientechnik for enabling this great event!

International CataLysis Networking Conference 2022

The CataLysis Conference 2022 will bring together the communities of the German DFG-funded collaborative research centers (CRCs) or Transregios (TRRs) working within the field of catalysis. Up to 400 participants form the CataLysis CRCs will have the chance to exchange on their latest fascinating research and to discuss interdisciplinary topics like F.A.I.R. research data (together with NFDI4Cat). Furthermore, we will have amazing, selected talks (four per CRC), presented in two parallel sessions, every project will have the chance to present a poster and we will provide a panel for networking for early-career group leaders.
