SINCHEM is a three year international joint Doctoral School in Sustainable Industrial Chemistry offered by a consortium of 25 partner institutions (7 full partners and 18 associated members). Strong industrial links to major companies in the field are a key part of SINCHEM.
SINCHEM seek to exploit fundamental knowledge to applied development by developing collaborations between high level academic and industrial teams across Europe. Our main mission will be to transfer sustainable/green chemistry from idea to innovation.
Characteristics of the Doctorate:The scientific objectives of SINCHEM are to perform world-level science in the field of sustainable chemistry with full attention to the interface with the industrial chemistry competitiveness and Europe’s environment and sustainable development.
SINCHEM will focused on the following mains sectors, which are both key aspects of the principles for sustainable/green chemistry and critical elements for the innovation in the sustainable chemical industry:
- Development of innovative catalysts and catalytic processes.
- Novel green solvents.
- Renewable energy and raw materials.
- Micro-reactors and membrane.
The first Doctoral candidates will start in the programme from October 2013. Applications for doctoral candidates is closed. In connection with call for applications, the SINCHEM Consortium has published a catalog of PhD research topics.
