Netherlands Institute for Catalysis Research (NIOK)
NIOK is a nationwide graduate school (‘Onderzoekschool’) which fosters the advancement of both higher education and research in catalysis and stimulates collaboration between scientists of different disciplines and Universities.
The Catalysis Section of the Royal Dutch Chemical Society (KNCV) is an organisation with about 500 members, both in academia and in industry. The section unites those who are active in the field of Catalysis in The Netherlands.
National Research School Combination Catalysis Controlled by Chemical Design (NRSC-Catalysis)
NRSC-Catalysis is a meeting point of knowledge of catalysis in The Netherlands. Experts in various key sub-disciplines from eight Dutch universities join forces in this new organisation to execute a strong innovative research programme of international standing in catalysis, to meet the challenge of a sustainable society in the next century.
VIRAN (Association of Industrial Advisory Council Members of the Dutch Institute for Catalysis Research)
is an association formed to promote the interests of industrial companies involved in catalysis, both as producers and users.
The NIOK-Society is a joined effort, which stems from a close cooperation between KNCV-Catalysis, NIOK, NRSCC and VIRAN. The NIOK-Society will provide a newsletter to all people interested in Catalysis in The Netherlands on a regular base (4-5 times a year).
Advanced Chemical Technologies for Sustainability (ACTS)
ACTS is the Dutch platform for pre-competitive research in chemistry and chemical technology in which catalysis plays a pivotal role. In ACTS government, industry, university and knowledge institutes cooperate in public-private partnerships. ACTS also carries out the programme management of CatchBio.
