Ten years of CatchBio celebration
On 16th November, over 150 attendees joined the CatchBio Celebrates symposium. Scientists, industry representatives and other interested visitors celebrated a decade of chemo catalytic biomass conversion in the Netherlands at SugarCity Events in Halfweg. The program included presentations from renowned invited speakers from international academia and industry. In addition, researchers who accelerated their professional career in the CatchBio consortium contributed to the symposium in short video presentations.
According to scientific director Bert Weckhuysen, this final symposium is not the end of biomass catalysis research in the Netherlands. The unique platform of expertise, talents, skills and knowledge will be employed further in new programs to continuously develop the BioBased Economy and make our society more sustainable. In January 2017 the CatchBio Magazine will be available. Anyone interested in receiving a copy can let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org.
