We are pleased to invite members of the catalytic community to the Ibero-American School of Catalysis, which will be held on the days prior to the Congress in Bizkaia Aretoa, as part of the UPV/EHU Summer Courses. Participants will be invited to present their research in the areas of catalysis related to undergraduate, graduate, and early career scientists.
The Bizkaia Aretoa, where The Ibero-American Catalysis School will take place is located about 750m (10 minutes walking) from the congress venue the Euskalduna Congress and Music Palace.
