Welcome to Trondheim and EuropaCat 2025!

Welcome to Trondheim and EuropaCat 2025!

It is with pride and excitement that we invite you to EuropaCat 2025 in Trondheim, Norway. This will be the 16th European Congress on Catalysis under the auspices of the European Federation of Catalysis Societies (EFCATS) and organized as a joint effort of the Nordic Catalysis Societies.

Trondheim is easy to reach and safe, with beautiful natural surroundings and a Viking history. It is a lively, urban university town, small enough to make logistics very easy for the conference participants. We will create a vibrant catalysis hub on its seaside, with easy access from airport and public communication and plenty of different hotels nearby.

And we urge you to join and bring excellent science, hard work, bright ideas, successful catalyst development, innovative solutions and an open mind. It is clear that mastering “the force” of catalysis will be of outmost importance to the resource and environmental challenges that lie ahead for humanity.

You will find updates about the event here, but please also sign up to receive announcements as well as the call for abstracts by email. We will also create channels via which everyone dedicated to catalysis can make suggestions to the program.

Welcome to a friendly and inclusive scientific event in the Nordic spirit!

Target groups

Target groups

The target groups for EuropaCat 2025 are academia and industry focusing on fundamental research, applied research and development within catalysis.

Participants from academia include both scientists and students focusing on catalysis, reaction engineering, chemical engineering, material science, analytical chemistry, electrochemistry, photocatalysis, organic and inorganic chemistry, physical chemistry, as well as computational chemistry.

Industrial participants come from businesses with focus on catalyst development and production, refining and petrochemistry, fine chemicals and pharmaceuticals synthesis, energy conversion including use of renewable resources, car manufacturing (exhaust gas cleaning systems, clean combustion technologies), new materials (organic, inorganic), gas and water cleaning, abatement of emissions from stationary and mobile sources.

Two new Copper partners

Another two Copper partners will join EuropaCat2025:

Avantium is a pioneer in the emerging industry of renewable and sustainable chemistry. Avantium is headquartered in Amsterdam, employing approximately 200 people, with extensive R&D laboratories and three pilot plants in Geleen and Delfzijl, the Netherlands.

REACNOSTICS provides reactor hardware, measurement services and modeling capabilities to help customers optimize their catalytic reactors based on knowledge. They strive to make the reactor „transparent“ by measuring and/or modeling the concentration, temperature and flow field inside the reactor and characterize the local state of the catalyst by spatially resolved spectroscopy

Three new Copper partners

EuropaCat 2025 is pleased to announce that we have three new partners on board:

Since 1899, Parr Instrument Company has been providing high quality lab instruments for testing fuels and for conducting chemical reactions and tests under high temperatures and pressures. Their products are used for research, quality assurance, production and teaching in laboratories, pilot plants, and small scale manufacturing facilities.

They specialize in stirred reactors, pressure vessels, tubular reactors, horizontal reactors, fluidized bed reactors, custom designed lab scale reactors, oxygen bomb calorimeters, shaker hydrogenators, and sample preparation equipment.

RSC connect scientists with each other and society as a whole.  They publish new research and develop, recognise and celebrate professional capabilities. RCS bring people together to spark new ideas and new partnerships and support teachers to inspire future generations of scientists. RCS wants to be a catalyst for the chemistry that enriches our world.

Integrated Lab Solutions (ILS) is a provider of chemical R&D services and products. Their core business includes: Designing, building and commissioning of fully-automated reactor systems with integrated analytics. They are also providing rapid research facilities for contract R&D as well as R&D Software tools designed by catalyst researchers to accelerate data interpretation and lead generation
