CANCELLED: Catalysis, An Integrated Approach (CAIA 2020, online version)

We regret to have to inform you that, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, our course

Catalysis, An Integrated Approach (CAIA 2020, online version)

has been cancelled.

An important, valuable aspect of the CAIA course is networking and getting to know the catalysis community in The Netherlands; This, we believe, cannot be achieved in a fully online setting.

 We will keep you informed of further developments. (Pre-) registered participants have been informed by email.

Registrations will be kept on file and transferred to the next course. 


Looking forward to meeting you in person again, as soon as possible!
