The PHOSPORE spring school on porous hybrid materials is organized by a consortium of Belgian research groups collaborating in the EOS project ‘Mastering metal-PHOSphonate properties in PORE-size engineered catalysts for bio-refinery processes’.

During this three-day event, all the involved researchers will present their work, and a selection of 10 internationally recognized experts in catalysis, biorefinery processes, and advanced characterization techniques will present tutorial lectures. The event is aimed at PhD researchers and postdoctoral fellows with a broad interest in synthesis-structure-property relations in complex (catalytic) materials systems, bringing together scientists specializing in metal-phosphonate and MOF chemistry, heterogeneous acid catalysis and the analysis of pore-size engineered structures. The spring school also offers participants a platform to reach out to this interdisciplinary community during a flash presentation session and to discuss the latest advancements in high-end characterization techniques such as solid-state NMR, X-ray absorption spectroscopy, electron microscopy and chemometrics with experts in the field. The spring school program will also include informal networking opportunities in the form of a social activity and a dinner.

We look forward to welcoming you in Brussels at the ‘Hoek 38 venue’ to have a fruitful and enriching experience!
