Title
CritCat
Towards Replacement of CRITical CATalyst Materials by Improved Nanoparticle Control and Rational Design

Description
The CritCat proposal aims to provide solutions for the substitution of critical metals, especially rare platinum group metals (PGMs), used in heterogeneous and electrochemical catalysis. CritCat will explore the properties of ultra-small transition metal (TM) nanoparticles in order achieve optimal catalytic performance with earth-abundant materials.
