The idea behind this European summer school is to bring together scientist from the different scales of modeling as well as the various countries in Europe. The atomistic modeling of reactions on catalytically active surfaces and the design of catalytic reactors spans various time and length scales. Bridging these scales through multiscale modeling is becoming more common and sophisticated. It is the intention of this summer school to give students as well as participants from the chemical industry an introduction, overview and hands-on experience in the various areas. Moreover, by bringing together researchers from the various fields this summer school will serve as a platform to exchange ideas and can be a nucleus for future collaborations.
Courses will cover topics in:
- Different scales of modelling
- Density Functional Theory and micro kinetics,
- Kinetic monte carlo simulations,
- Computational Fluid Dynamics and macro kinetics,
- Reactor design
Courses will be given by world leading experts from the organizing institutions and:
-Princeton University (USA)
-Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (DE)
-Munich Technical University (DE)
-Polytechnic of Milan (IT)
-Ghent University (BE)
-University of Crete (GR)
The summer school is intended for PhD-Students and Post-Doctoral scientists as well as industrial practitioners who are interested in chemical reaction engineering.
