RESEARCH TEAMS

Research carried out at IQCC is organized in several research teams led by either senior or junior scientists. Promising young investigators are given the opportunity to set up their own independent research teams. [More]

MASTER STUDIES

IQCC offers the Master in Advanced Catalysis and Molecular Modelling (MACMoM) with the commitment to transfer the most recent research in computational chemistry and catalysis to the future professionals. [More]

EVENTS

IQCC is involved in the organization of national and international conferences, with the participation of major figures in chemistry. The Girona Seminar and the GEQO meeting are the two main events in 2016. [More]

OUTREACH ACTIVITIES

IQCC is commited to raise public awareness of science by actively organizing dissemination and communication activities together with C4D, an offspring of the Institute that fosters innovation in digital science communication. [More]
