A European training network of catalytic importance
Catalysis research is dedicated to further understanding and optimising existing catalysts, and to designing new tailor-made, affordable materials with a focus on high activity and high selectivity. Funded by the Marie Skłodowska-Curie programme, the CATCHY project is a European training network that will offer young scientists training in the nanocatalysis field and facilitate knowledge transfer via secondments between academia and industry. The project will tailor new high-performance thermo- and electrocatalysts for CO2 conversion into added-value synthetic fuels. Work activities will include the production of bimetallic gas phase clusters; extensive characterisation of their morphology and atomic structure; fundamental reactivity studies; and thermo- and electrocatalytic laboratory tests. In addition, a prototype of the most promising electrocatalyst will be tested under realistic operative conditions in a gas diffusion electrode.
