What is VIRAN?

About VIRAN: what is VIRAN and what does it do?

History
VIRAN was established in 1996 when members of the industrial advisory council of the catalysis research school NIOK realized the need for a separate forum for the exchange of information and ideas within the catalysis industry and for the coordination of industrial influence on catalytic education and university research.

Venues
In addition to providing members with valuable networking possibilities and close contacts with the forefront of Dutch catalysis research, VIRAN holds an annual plenary meeting, to coincide with the Netherlands Catalysis and Chemistry Congress, and a summer meeting. The VIRAN Board meets several times each year.

Members
Currently VIRAN consists of 13 members
