First N3C Award for Katalin Barta
Katalin Barta received the first N3C Award for her outstanding achievements in the field of catalysis. The purpose of the N3C award is to recognize excellent work in catalysis and chemistry carried out by an early career PI. The award is intended to give the next generation of talented catalysis researchers working in the Netherlands an extra encouragement and bring them in the spotlight of catalysis communities in the Netherlands and abroad.
ERC starting grant of 1.5 M eu awarded to support research activities in the Barta group!
Dr. Katalin Barta of the Synthetic Organic Chemistry group (Stratingh Institute for Chemistry) has been awarded an ERC Starting Grant of 1.5 million EUR. During this research she will develop novel, fully sustainable catalytic methods for the conversion of renewable resources to industrially relevant bulk and fine chemicals. The approach combines several disciplines including homogeneous and heterogeneous catalysis in order to address key fundamental challenges in the field . The ERC Starting Grant enables researchers to establish their team to further develop their research lines.
