Summer School 2019

The Summer School of SFB 1333 “Molecular Heterogeneous Catalysis in Confined Geometries“, took place in Ellwangen at the Tagungshaus Schönenberg from Monday September 30th to October 2nd 2019. This provided the opportunity to increase the knowledge on catalyst design in general as well as network with other PhD students and to strengthen the collaboration between the interdisciplinary research fields of CRC 1333.


After the arrival on Monday, the PHD students presented their research projects in several sessions spread over the three days. In order to enrich the discussion of these PHD students, two lectures were given by guest speakers. Prof. Dr. Vera Meynen from the Department of Chemistry, University of Antwerp, Belgium, gave a lecture titled “Introduction to catalyst design” on Monday.


On Tuesday this was followed by a lecture by Prof. Dr. Vera Krewald, Department of Chemistry, Technical University of Darmstadt, who focused on “Elucidating Catalysis with Theoretical Chemistry and Computational Spectroscopy”. The program overview can be found here.
