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 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 XXIst edition of NCCC will take place from March 2-4 2020 in Noordwijkerhout. Information about speakers follows asap.

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 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 (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 was presented during the 20th N3C anniversary conference that will took place March 4-6, 2019. The award consists of a certificate, artwork and an N3C award lecture given in plenary format during the conference.
