Start date: 01/01/2017
End date: 31/12/2020
Funding: 1569640 EUR


CATMEC is a multi-partner European Joint Doctorate (EJD) Programme offering research training in
state-of-the-art sustainable chemical synthesis, catalysis, computational chemistry and bioactive
molecule design on both traditional and non-traditional (eg flow) platforms. This Doctoral Training
Programme integrates complementary, interdisciplinary and intersectoral training and together with
enhanced European mobility through planned secondments of researchers, will contribute to EU
policy objectives in scientific training and degree assessment.
The researchers will be supervised and mentored by internationally recognised experts and have
access to state-of-the-art equipment. Hands-on training will be supplemented by formal training
courses in relevant and related fields, and a wide variety of complementary training courses,
workshops and seminars. The training of researchers will benefit from secondments to industrial
partners, gaining exposure to commercial and complementary environments.
Overall, it is anticipated that the CATMEC project will provide Early Stage Researchers (ESRs) with
an outstanding training experience, through extensive technical and complementary skills
