ZEOCAT3D M12: teleconference due to COVID-19 outbreak

Due to the special circumstances that we are facing because of the COVID-19 outbreak, the physical meeting for month 12 of the ZEOCAT-3D project had to be cancelled. This physical meeting was planned to take place during March in the facilities of the National Center for Scientific Research “DEMOKRITOS”, in Athens.

In order to keep the discussions, the consortium of the project decided to hold a teleconference with all the partners involved to present the main results of the project in the last six months. In this virtual meeting that took place for two days (March 18 and 19), all partners had the opportunity to describe their work and to set the basis of new discussions.

The focus was on the laboratory work needed for the development of the bi-functional catalyst and the research on the main operational parameters required for the further design of the methane dehydroaromatization (MDA) reactor.

All partners, following the European governmental recommendations related to teleworking, joined the teleconference at home, allowing a very efficient meeting with fluent discussions about next actions and potential work interrelated among partners.

We are all looking forward to meeting and discuss face to face in our next physical meeting!
