Dates for your Diary:

UK Catalysis Hub Summer Conference 2017

When: 11th - 12th July 2017 

Where: Milton Hill House, Steventon, Abingdon, OX13 6AF

The UK Catalysis hub runs a Biannual Conference for it members.

The conferences are intended as a forum for the presentation and discussion of Catalytic research.

One aim of the UK Catalysis Hub is to develop the next generation of researchers, to facilitate this aim, on the 11th July 2017 the summer conference will start with a buffet lunch at Milton Hill House, Abingdon before an afternoon of talks.

There will be a poster session and conference dinner at Milton Hill House, Abingdon (limited numbers) and then a further schedule of talks on the morning of the 12th finishing with a buffet lunch.
