The Netherlands' Catalysis and Chemistry Conference attracts about 500 participants, including around 100 scientists from industry. The meeting comprises plenary and keynote lectures from invited speakers and selected oral papers and posters. Scientists, and especially PhD-students, are encouraged to submit abstracts so they can present their work and discuss it with leading scientists and representatives from industry.

NCCC offers a unique, international forum to exchange innovative ideas between academic and industrial scientists in a broad area of catalysis and chemistry research and technology.

This event will be held in Noordwijkerhout, The Netherlands during 7th - 9th March 2017. Prof. Dr. G.J. Poelarends from RUG,  a leading PI of the Carbazymes project will give a keynote lecture,  about (Bio) Organic Synthesis and Catalysis.
