The Young Academy of Europe (YAE) is a bottom-up initiative of a dynamic and innovative group of recognized European young scientists with outspoken views about science and science policy. The key aims of the Young Academy of Europe are to provide advice and feedback on science policy, involve top young scientists in the future European research strategy, promote evidence based policy across all European countries, and support other young scientists in Europe through a network that goes across the disciplines.
Now, Prof. Julio Lloret-Fillol, ICIQ group leader and ICREA professor, has been appointed member of this multidisciplinary institution, being one of the very few chemists among YAE’s hundreds of members.
Prof. Lloret-Fillol’s research is focused on the design of new catalysts for a more sustainable chemistry through the use of artificial photosynthetic schemes. Holder of an ERC Consolidator Grant, Lloret-Fillol dreams to achieve the production of fine chemicals using solely CO2 and water, as well as light as the driving force.
