With increasing analytical power of the microscopes and the availability of tools for in-situ experiments, the chemistry between a sample and its surrounding gets more into the focus of investigations.

Microscopists are, however, often not experts in chemistry, and vice versa, not many chemists are trained in electron microscopy. There are urgent and important questions in the field of catalysis on the one hand, and a large variety of complex interactions that need to be understood by the microscopist on the other.

The aim of the CHEMEM school is to illuminate the chemical aspects of electron microscopy.

The program addresses PhD students, postdocs and assistant professor that are active in the field of heterogeneous catalysis, inorganic chemistry and physics. Participants are expected to have basic knowledge in electron microscopy.
