Event7th Singapore Catalysis Forum

Our 7th annual forum was successfully held in Biopolis on 23-May-2014. The forum gather together more than one hundred participants mainly from Singapore and also from all over the world. Distinguished invited speakers include: Prof. Ted Oyama from Tokyo University, Prof. Fritz Kühn from TU Munich, Prof. Ikuo Fujii from Osaka Prefecture University, Prof. Notker Rösch from TU München, Dr. Angela Marinetti from CNRS France, and Dr. Fabien Cabirol from Evonik (SEA).

The forum also included student oral and poster presentation competitions. ZHANG Jiaguang from Prof. YAN Ning's group in ChBE, NUS won the best oral presentation, and LI Ziwei from Prof. Kawi's group in the same department won the best poster presentation. Congratulations to the two young scientists!

Event: The 1st International Symposium on Catalytic Science and Technology in Sustainable Energy and Environment

The sustainability of energy and environment has been one of the most important concerns of the human society in recent years. Catalytic technologies play a major role in approaching the sustainable goal. In recent years, many friends visited Tianjin and brought to us exciting progress and presentations.

Now, we propose to initiate an international symposium in Tianjin, the third largest, the richest in history and recently updated city in China, to host discussions on important catalytic topics. We propose to have the first event during October 8-10, 2014, just before the National Congress on Catalysis of China, which will be held in Hangzhou, so called paradise of China, the week afterwards.
