Catalysis is one of the technological pillars of modern chemical industry. Catalysis also holds the key to the solution of many environmental and energy problems. The challenge in the field is to devise new methods that can accelerate the development of new catalysts and processes beyond the intuitive trial-and-error approach. It is suggested to form a collaborative program encompassing the whole range from computational design and experimental analysis of model systems to synthesis and testing of new catalysts. The aim of the program is to develop new tools allowing for the rational design of catalysts and catalytic processes for chemical industry and for environmental protection.
