GeCatS Info Day „Digitalization in catalysis: taking the next step“

The aim of the GeCatS Info day 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 main topics are:

-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

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

GeCatS - The German Catalysis Society is the platform for the entire German catalysis community in the area of research and application. Currently it has about 1100 members from industry and academia.

Search / advanced search of the idw archives
Combination of search terms

You can combine search terms with and, or and/or not, e.g. Philo not logy.


You can use brackets to separate combinations from each other, e.g. (Philo not logy) or (Psycho and logy).


Coherent groups of words will be located as complete phrases if you put them into quotation marks, e.g. “Federal Republic of Germany”.

Selection criteria

You can also use the advanced search without entering search terms. It will then follow the criteria you have selected (e.g. country or subject area).

If you have not selected any criteria in a given category, the entire category will be searched (e.g. all subject areas or all countries).
