Pedro Mendes - Domain Ambassador for catalysis


Chemical Engineering, in particular Catalysis, can design the new circular economy based on powerful scientific models. While Open Science Tools for using data are being developed (catalysis informatics), data sharing is incipient and significant community level activities do not exist. My main goal is, thus, to break the ground and make data sharing a community practice. This will be achieved by: (i) raising awareness on open science and FAIR data in young researchers and established researchers; (ii) developing key guidelines for FAIR data sharing in catalysis; (iii) setting the ground for a data sharing framework in catalysis.
