The students of the International Max Planck Research School on Reactive Structure Analysis for Chemical Reactions organize a symposium that covers the use of various catalytic techniques which aim to overcome the energy-related problems from both an academic and an industrial point of view - ACAMEC "Advanced Catalysis and Materials for Energy Conversion"
Using a combination of experimental, spectroscopic and theoretical approaches, experienced academic speakers will present their ideas, current breakthroughs and main challenges to address in future studies. Bridging academic research and industrial application by inviting select speakers from companies will shine light on economic and ecological aspects of current catalytic approaches on a larger scale.
Ph.D. students will have the opportunity to present their own studies in poster or talk format, and to discuss the different facets of catalysis and material science with experts in these fields.
There will be Keynote Lectures by Prof. Walter Leitner (Max Planck Institute for Chemical Energy Conversion), Prof. Karsten Reuter (Technical University / Fritz Haber Institute of the Max Planck Society), Prof. Marcella Bonchio (University of Padova) and Prof. Xile Hu (École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne)
