Royal Society of Chemistry Highlights CEBC's Multidisciplinary Efforts

Thursday, February 19, 2009

The Royal Society of Chemistry, Europe's largest  organization for advancing the chemical sciences, published an article in Chemistry World in Feb. 2008 that highlighted CEBC. The story is about how the UK is promoting collaboration between chemists and chemical engineers, something that has historically been difficult to accomplish.

The article is about a new initiative at Nottingham University called, 'Driving Innovation in Chemistry and Engineering' (DICE), and how this program is" fostering connections and cross-disciplinary understanding among young researchers and students." They noted that scientists in the U.S., such as those at the Center for Environmentally Beneficial Catalysis, already succeed at these types of collaborative efforts. They also noted that industry guidance helps CEBC's chemists and engineers develop sustainable chemical reactions.
