The UK Catalysis Hub is an open community to promote and strengthen UK catalysis research and it welcomes interaction with the wider catalysis Community.

Please contact the project manager for more information about current Hub activities, conferences and opportunities.

The Catalysis Hub is keen to offer support to research proposals that are complementary to the scope of the UK Catalysis Hub programme. Please contact us, via the management group, at the earliest possible stage in proposal development so that we can work with you to ensure that any support we offer is fully integrated and meaningful. This may not be possible at a late stage.

There are a number of schemes in place for interaction with the hub, please use the links below for more information.
