Title: BImetallic catalysts Knowledge-based development for Energy applications.
ICCOM Principal Investigator: Alessandro Fortunelli.
Project Type: International.
Abstract: BIKE (BImetallic catalysts Knowledge-based development for Energy applications) is a network for training of T-shaped young promising scientists, who will develop and apply, by an innovative “holistic” approach, the next generation of bimetallic catalysts for energy management, in particular for blue and green hydrogen production processes. BIKE next generation bimetallic catalysts will exhibit superior performance under realistic conditions thanks to the combination of state-of-the-art tools (predictive modelling, advanced characterization, knowledge based design and novel preparation of catalysts, and explorative testing) in a single methodology to fully exploit their added value in a synergistic way. The goal of the BIKE ITN is to address the need of qualified personnel both in the private industry and in the public sector by providing a team of 14 qualified ESRs with a comprehensive and application-oriented knowledge of the H2-field.
