The Organizing Committee thanks all which attended and contributed to the realization of the 13th European Congress on Catalysis (EUROPACAT 2017) held from August 27 to 31, 2017 in Florence, Italy. EUROPACAT 2017, with the theme of “A bridge to the future”, has shown the crucial roles of catalysis science and technology in enabling our sustainable future. With about 1700 participants, of which about 600 students, from 55 countries worldwide and participation of over 60 companies the congress can be considered a great success.
The conference was organized by ERIC aisbl (European Research Institute of Catalysis) and the Italian Group of Catalysis of the Italian Chemical Society (SCI), in collaboration with the Division of Industrial Chemistry of SCI and the University Consortium on Science and Technology of Materials (INSTM). The conference is thus the result of a joint effort between the Italian catalysis community and the competences and expertise of ERIC community around Europe. Their joint effort will promote the scientific excellence and appealing character of the conference, to create an extraordinary event for all catalysis community.
