50. Katalytikertreffen - 50. Annual Catalysis Meeting

The “Katalytikertreffen” celebrates the 50th anniversary from 15th March, 2017 to March 17th, 2017 in Weimar, Germany. The most important meeting for catalysis headed by DECHEMA, provides as usual top-class plenary lectures – among them the Winner of the Alwin Mittasch Prize 2017. Both, senior experts and young scientists will have the chance to meet up and to discuss the latest developments of all areas of catalysis. A large industrial exhibition will also accompany the scientific programme. More than 600 participants are expected in Weimar to exchange ideas and share new developments of catalysis.

50. Annual Catalysis Meeting
For the 50th anniversary this year, high-profile plenar lectures are set, which present the catalysis research in all its width in academic and industrial point of view. In addition, the winner of the Otto Roelen Medal 2016 will be awarded and celebrated especially at this event.
It all started 50 years ago with a small meeting of researchers who discussed catalytic results and commenced initial collaborations with industry. In that time the “Katalytikertreffen” has evolved into the most important meeting in Germany for catalysis experts from universities, research institutes and industry.
Each year renowned plenary speakers are invited to further enhance the high-level scientific programme of the conference. The meeting is appreciated not only by senior experts but also by young scientists, who have the opportunity to gain experience in presenting scientific results and discussing these with their academic peers. So come and join us to celebrate a half century of catalysis research at this monumental occasion!
We look forward to your contribution to the conference and to meeting you in March 2017 in Weimar. Register now or get further information at
