Chemistry is the best tool we have to solve the challenges of today and improve our quality of life.
ICIQ research groups work in many different areas, from the catalytic activation of chemical feedstocks to the development of renewable energy from sunlight and CO2 capture and valorization. All of ICIQ groups share the same goal: to attain sustainability. Here at ICIQ we have a multidisciplinary approach to research, encouraging all sort of collaborations: in-house, national, and international. We also work on Science Policy to position chemical research in the European research strategy agenda.
We also believe in excellent research. We have received a total of 21 European Research Council (ERC) grants, so far. The ERC’s mission is to encourage the highest quality research in Europe through competitive funding and to support investigator-driven frontier research across all fields, on the basis of scientific excellence.
