European Federation of Catalysis Societies

The 2020 Summer School of the European Federation of Catalysis Societies (EFCATS) will be held from 15-19 September 2020 in Grand Hotel Bernardin Convention Center in Portorož-Portorose, Slovenia. The event entitled “ENGINEERING MATERIALS FOR CATALYSIS” is organized jointly by the Section for Catalysis of the Slovenian Chemical Society and the Austrian Catalysis Society.

The 2020 EFCATS Summer School will focus on recent advances regarding synthesis, in-situ and operando characterization and applications of heterogeneous catalysts as well as multi-scale modelling of catalytic processes. Besides, the publication system and less competitive free discussions will be addressed at the meeting.

Master and doctoral students as well as early-stage researchers being involved in the above-mentioned topics are strongly encouraged to attend the event. More than ten worldwide known experts will deliver invited lectures. The participants will be able to present the results of their research work in the form of oral presentations and poster contributions. A half-day tour to the ELETTRA synchrotron in Trieste, Italy, will be organized as part of the 2020 EFCATS Summer School.

We look forward to meeting you in Portorož-Portorose in September 2020!


The 2020 EFCATS Summer School entitled“ENGINEERING MATERIALS FOR CATALYSIS” will last four days and will consist of invited lectures, oral presentations and poster contributions. The papers will be selected by the chairs, based on the innovative aspect and scientific level. The abstracts should be related to the topics of the 2020 EFCATS Summer School.

The official language of the event is English. Papers and other documents will be in English. No translation facilities will be provided.

Presentation of scientific contributions. The majority of scientific contributions will be presented as posters, but a limited number of papers will be selected for oral presentation. For invited and oral presentations, each lecture room will be set up with the necessary audiovisual equipment. The display boards for poster presentations (width: 90 cm; height: 190 cm) will be provided. Posters (brought in person by the author and not mailed in advance) should be mounted on the board corresponding to their poster number.


The 2020 EFCATS Summer School entitled “ENGINEERING MATERIALS FOR CATALYSIS“ will cover the following topics:

– advanced synthesis and basic characterization of heterogeneous catalysts
– in-situ and operando characterization
– synchrotron characterization
– applications of heterogeneous catalysts
– multi-scale modelling of catalytic processes
– communication in science (publication system and less competitive free discussions)
