German Society for Catalysis

German Society for Catalysis

The German Catalysis Society (GeCatS) is the central lobby of the German catalysis community and an information platform for catalysis research and application. The activities of the supporting companies DECHEMA, VDI-GVC as well as GDCh, DBG and DGMK in the field of catalysis are thus brought together under one roof. Tasks and goals of the society, which currently has around 1100 members, include the promotion of young scientists, promoting the reputation of the subject in the general public, establishing a platform for the discussion of current scientific issues, information about research-political publications and studies, cooperation with other national/European/international organisations, lobbying with funding organizations and organizing and conducting the "Annual Meeting of German Catalysts".

Membership in the German Society for Catalysis is open to every member of the five supporting societies without an additional fee.
