Project Description

The Institute of Chemical Research of Catalonia (ICIQ) is a non-profit research organisation, focused on catalysis and renewable energy. ICIQ contributes to strengthening the competitiveness of the chemical industry in Southern Europe through innovation and technical improvement. The ICIQ group in FlowPhotoChem is primarily pursuing research in the modelling of (photo-electro)-catalysis.
