Lyon, France


The French catalysis community ia hosting the 18th International Congress on Catalysis, which will be held in Lyon on July 14-19, 2024.

All French academic laboratories related to catalysis, along with the majority of the industrial companies will contribute to this successful event. The strong background of France continues today thanks to a young generation of talented scientists in all fields of catalysis. Based on these strong roots, the French community wishes to promote disruptive catalysis with the objective of building a better world. In a spirit of cross-fertilization between disciplines, worldwide societal challenges including the environment, energy, mobility, and the circular economy will be addressed through invited lectures and dedicated sessions in line with the main conference slogan “ROOTS AND WINGS FOR A BETTER WORLD”.

As captured by the secondary slogan “BUILD YOUR ICC!”,  the 18th ICC is an opportunity for “participatory catalysis” by favoring interactions based on digital communication. Building a participatory ICC2024 is an early add-on prior to the conference.

You can submit abstracts until the end of October. Our corresponding scientific topic is T16!

Event Highlights:

  • Standardisation of catalysis data
  • Data sharing and curation
  • Catalysis Informatics
  • Community-driven infrastructure
  • Digital research

The topic committee members, including experts from around the globe:

Chair: Annette TRUNSCHKE, FHI Berlin, Germany
Chair: Pedro MENDES, University Lisbon, Portugal
Stefan SCHUNK, BASF, Germany
Abraham NIEVA de la HIDALGA, UK Catalysis Hub – Cardiff University, UK
Susannah SCOTT, University of California Santa Barbara, USA
Matthias BELLER, Leibniz Institute for Catalysis, Germany

We are looking forward to see you in Lyon! Register here.
