European forum on electrochemical promotion of catalysis

European forum on electrochemical promotion of catalysis

Objective

This proposal aims at training young researchers to a new speciality: the electrochemical promotion of catalysis (EPOC). EPOC or Non-faradaic Electrochemical Modification of Catalytic Activity (NEMCA) effect is an innovative concept which can be used to modify both the activity and the selectivity of a catalyst. The multidisciplinary skills required to broaden the exploitation of EPOC and advance successful concepts to the process and/or device proof-of-concept stage are available in only a few research organizations and industrial companies.

The aims of the European Forum on Electrochemical Promotion of Catalysis (EFEPOC) are:
(i) to train young European researchers (master and PhD students, postdoctoral scientists) to the multidisciplinary field of EPOC;
(ii) to better structure and strengthen the EPOC European community.

The objective is to strengthen European leadership by defragmenting European resources: organisation of scientific exchanges, common publication and experiments, congress organisation, harmonization of methodology, setting up of future European projects through the FP7. EFEPOC is composed of two series of events over the period from 2007 to 2009: a coherent series of three training courses, entitled from solid state electrochemistry to heterogeneous catalysis, during which young researchers will acquire fundamental and practical knowledge, necessary for mastering all aspects of the EPOC field. By training these young scientists, the schools will ensure the dissemination of top-quality science, and will promote the start of the scientific careers of future leaders in the field, with two conferences which will cover both theoretical and practical aspects of EPOC, as well as the interactions of EPOC with the catalysis and electrochemistry community.
