Date:1/31/2013

ith a major role to play in the creation of new or improved processes. That is why EPSRC is strategically investing in this Catalysis Hub. Building on our previous initiatives, it will draw academics and institutions together to further enable cross-disciplinary research, and create a critical mass of activity which will enhance the international standing of the UK catalysis community and help it address the major challenges faced in the Physical Sciences, Energy, Manufacturing and Healthcare themes."

The UK Catalysis Hub, based at the Research Complex at Harwell (RCaH) in Oxfordshire, will coordinate multi-disciplinary scientists and chemical engineers from over 30 different universities. The Hub will enable scientists to collaborate on projects, share insights, expertise and developments; facilitate world-class research and attract new funding streams. Researchers will work at different universities, and the RCaH will offer training and research. "It's this combination of ideas from multi-disciplinary teams and across projects that will lead to breakthroughs," said co-project leader Professor Christopher Hardacre of Queen's University, Belfast.

Co-project leader, Professor Graham Hutchings, from Cardiff University, said: "Catalysis is a key area of science which can tackle the big problems. We will use catalysts in non-traditional ways and in new innovative areas."

Four inter-related themes will be addressed with teams interacting between projects to advance catalytic science:

Catalyst Design, led by Professor Richard Catlow, University College London, based at the Research Complex at Harwell Oxford Science Park. Awarded 3.7 million.

Professor Catlow said: "The overall theme of the research is to develop how catalysts work at a molecular level and, from that knowledge, to design new and improved catalysts. The molecular understanding of catalytic processes will lead to an optimisation of catalytic processes that will feed into the oth
