The Catalysis Science & Technology 10th Anniversary Symposium was held virtually 16-17 November 2021 and was attended by researchers from all areas of catalysis, from all over the world.
The event showcased cutting edge research across all areas of catalytic science, and provided an opportunity for the broad catalysis community to come together in honour of the journal’s important milestone. The event gave our attendees lots of opportunities to network and engage with world leading speakers, Catalysis Science & Technology Editorial Board members, the Editorial Office as well as other attendees. There were many exciting discussions and attendees had the chance to share their ideas with key members of the catalysis science community.
The programmed featured invited speakers across all areas of catalysis science, a panel discussion on the chemical recycling of plastics as well as a poster session. We had over 140 poster abstract submissions from researchers worldwide, and across a diverse spectrum of catalysis research areas. The posters were of exceptional quality, and judging decisions were very tight.
We were delighted to award 10 poster prizes to the below participants:
