NCCC-XVI: Poster and Lecture Awards

6. 3. 2015 | Susan

The successful 16th Netherlands’ Catalysis and Chemistry Conference (NCCC-XVI) has been visited by over 500 participants from The Netherlands and abroad, having a background in academia and/or industry. Inspiring keynote speakers have been able to attract the attention of the participants which resulted in many animated discussions scattered over the three days.

Next to the various lecture and poster sessions, PhD students and post-docs obtained better insights into their career opportunities at the very much appreciated Career Development & Opportunities session. Also the NIOK PhD Platform presented itself with a very nice Bowling Night in the Cheers Sport café. More of their upcoming activities can be found at their dedicated section of this website (NPP).

Each year poster and lecture awards have been handed over to promising young scientists. The VIRAN Poster Awards are handed over by Eelco Vogt (Albemarle, chairman of VIRAN) and the NIOK Lecture Awards by Joost Reek (UvA, Scientific Director NIOK):

The awards for the best posters at NCCC-XVI were awarded to Dimitrije Cicmil (Utrecht University) and Anne Jans (University of Amsterdam). The prizes consist of a plaque and € 500, sponsored by VIRAN. From left to right on the photo: Anne, Dimitrije and Eelco.
