The Institution of Chemical Engineers (IChemE) launches a new bursary to fund 20 postgraduate students to attend a summer school to enhance their knowledge in catalysis. Chemical engineering postgraduates are invited to apply for the week-long “Catalysis: Fundamental and Practice summer school,” which gives attendees an introduction to the fundamental aspects of catalysis and a chance to learn from leading researchers and industrialists in the field presenting at the event.

IChemE introduces the bursary under the Andrew Legacy scheme to support scores of students in enhancing their knowledge in catalysis. The Andrew Legacy scheme is funded following a donation made to the institution by the late Professor Syd Andrew, an IChemE fellow and distinguished expert in the field of catalysis.

The summer school is organized by and held at the University of Liverpool’s Department of Chemistry every two years. This year, it will be held from July 18-22, 2022. It is open to PhD, EngD and MSc students worldwide who can travel to and stay in the U.K. for the duration of the program. The bursary awards each person up to £2,000 in travel expenses (including visa fees, where required) and up to £1,000 to cover course fees and the cost of accommodation.

“Professor Syd Andrew FRS was a leader in chemical engineering and heterogeneous catalysis, and he was a strong proponent of science-based industry. His legacy has already had a huge influence on the careers of early career researchers across the chemical engineering and chemistry communities,” says University College London Professor Marc-Olivier Coppens, chair of the Andrew Panel, which is a group of IChemE member volunteers who support and coordinate activities under the Andrew Legacy scheme. “We at IChemE are delighted to introduce this new bursary to enable more students to learn and develop their practical skills in catalysis through this extensive learning program organized successfully for many years by the University of Liverpool.”
