NCCC-XVIII: Poster and Lecture Awards


Once again the Netherlands’ Catalysis and Chemistry Conference (NCCC-XVIII) was a great success, and 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.
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-XVIII were awarded to Nynke Krans (Universiteit Utrecht) and Shamayita Kanungo (Technical University of Eindhoven). The prizes consist of a plaque and € 500, sponsored by VIRAN. From left to right on the photo: Eelco, Nynke and Shamayita.
