Welcome to the website of the NCCC, The Netherlands' Catalysis and Chemistry Conference.
The last Conference, the XXth anniversary of NCCC, took place from March 4-6 2019 in Noordwijkerhout. Information about speakers can be found under 'Programme / Speakers'.
The conference continues the successful series of meetings, started in Lunteren (2000) and continued annually in Noordwijkerhout. The conference combines a number of national symposia in the field of chemistry and catalysis. Traditionally, participants from Flanders-Belgium also contribute to the meeting.
NCCC offers an unique, international forum to exchange innovative ideas between academic and industrial scientists in a broad area of catalysis and chemistry research and technology.
N3C AWARD 2019
During the N3C XX the first N3C award will be given to an outstanding early career researcher (Principle Investigator) working on topics related to the multidisciplinary field of catalysis in the Netherlands.
The purpose of the N3C award is to recognize outstanding work in catalysis and chemistry carried out by an early career PI made in the past 4 years (December 1, 2014 up to December 1, 2018). The N3C award is intended to give the next generation of talented catalysis researchers working in the Netherlands an extra encouragement and bring them in the spotlight of catalysis communities in the Netherlands and abroad. The first N3C award will be presented during the 20th N3C anniversary conference that will take place March 4-6, 2019. The award will consist of a certificate, artwork and an N3C award lecture given in plenary format during the conference.
