Welcome to the Swedish Catalysis Society

The members are both individuals with an interest in catalytic research and companies active in the area.

Berzelius Prize

The Berzelius Price and Lecture 2018 was awarded to Professor Riikka Puurunen, Aalto University, Finland.

The prize consists of a gold medal and a money grant (SEK 10,000) from the Swedish Catalysis Society.

About the Swedish Catalysis Society

Short facts:

  • The Swedish Catalysis Society was established in 1989
  • The main task is to arrange yearly catalyst symposia in Sweden
  • Two grants of SEK 7. 5000 are given to students each year
  • The society is represented in the Nordic Catalysis Society and in the European Catalysis Society

Become a member
Membership in the Swedish Catalysis Society is gained by paying the membership fee. The fee is for private persons 200 SEK, for students and retired 100 SEK and for companies 3000 SEK. The fee for sponsring is 6000 SEK. Companies will get a link to their web site. Payment is made through bankgiro 681-8249.
