NCCC, The Netherlands' Catalysis and Chemistry Conference.

The XXIst conference will take place from March 2-4 2020 in Noordwijkerhout.

Welcome to the website of the NCCC, The Netherlands' Catalysis and Chemistry Conference.

The XXIst edition of NCCC will take place from March 2-4 2020 in Noordwijkerhout. Below the names of the confirmed 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 20th N3C anniversary conference that took place March 4-6, 2019 the first N3C award was given to prof.dr. Katalin Barta from the University of Groningen.

The purpose of the N3C award, that will be awarded every 2 years, is to recognize outstanding work in catalysis and chemistry carried out by an early career PI made in the past 4 years and 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.
