GeCatS Infoday „Digitalization in catalysis: taking the next step“

5 November 2018 DECHEMA-Haus, Frankfurt/Main

More information:  Committee  Venue Dechema 

The goal of the GeCatS Infoday is to discuss the state-of-the-art and the various facets of Digitalization – particularly of a currently scattered landscape of activities relevant to catalysis.

Digitalization and Digital Transformation are current trends finding their way into a wide range of applications in industry and academia. These trends are also expected to have a major impact on today´s workflows in research and development. It is expected that catalysis can strongly benefit from Digitalization, especially, if during a transformation process, the right steps and measures are taken. As a multidisciplinary discipline, bridging aspects of organic and organometallic chemistry, materials science, the chemistry of biological systems, and reaction and process engineering, catalysis is characterized by a plethora of data from the atomic to the process level – thus offering multiple levers where Digitalization can come into play.

The contributions of the Infoday by known experts in the respective fields are arranged around the topics:

-Digitalization: an industrial viewpoint

-New perspectives in theoretical chemistry by digitalization

-How to structure, analyze and deal with “big data” 

-Closing the gap and creating loops between theory and practice

-Virtual materials and handling of experimental data related to characterization and performance tests

A panel discussion under the title:
“Digitalization in Catalysis: Opportunities, Challenges, Next Steps” give the audience an opportunity for open exchange of opinions and views.


The registration will be open soon.
