Programme overview

The integration of chemocatalysis and biocatalysis represents an under-exploited area of research that will be central to the future of sustainable synthesis and manufacture. The EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Integrated Catalysis (iCAT CDT), established in 2019, is a world-class research and training environment which brings together academic leaders and industrial scientists with a shared goal and vision for postgraduate student training: to work together across the disciplines of chemistry and at the interfaces between chemical engineering and manufacturing.
