EuCOMC 2019

EuCOMC 2019

Annette, Kathrin, Ljiljana, Aya and Diego are at EuCOMC 2019 in Helsinki (June 16-20, https://www.helsinki.fi/en/conferences/eucomc-xxiii), enjoying amazing talks on organometallic CO2 activation. Kathrin will give her plenary lecture on Thursday at 9:00.

Organometallics + CO2 = Happiness! The CHOCO group is at the EuCOMC 2019, where we organize an own parallel session on CO2 as part of NordCO2. The room is full!

We got our first EU grant!

MSCA-ITN Grant to CHOCO Group

Kathrin is coordinator of a new Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions Innovative Training Network (MSCA-ITN). The collaboration will train future scientists in the art of using carbon dioxide for synthesizing essential molecules in a sustainable manner.

The new network, aptly named CO2PERATE, will have three industrial partners: Evonik, AstraZeneca and Haldor Topsøe, and will collaborate with outstanding European research groups in the field: Ruben Martin (ICIQ), Cristina Nevado (UZH), Matthias Beller (LIKAT), Ainara Nova (UiO), Belén Martín-Matute (SU) and Troels Skrydstrup (AU). From Tromsø Luca Frediani and Annette Bayer will participate. 

15 new PhD positions will be announced in the research groups soon, 2 of those in the CHOCO group. Stay in touch!

Welcome Ainara!

Welcome Ainara

The CHOCO team welcomes Dr. Ainara Nova (UiO) as an Assoc. Prof-II (20% position) in the CHOCO group. Ainara will work together with us on computational catalysis and give courses, for example about microkinetic modelling. She will also increase the number of female PIs in computational chemistry at the department by 100%. 🙂


Dr. Ainara Nova, UiO.
