We are co-organizing the 23rd Conference on Organometallic Chemistry (EuCOMC XXIII) that will be held under the auspices of the European Association for Chemical and Molecular Sciences (EuCheMS). This event will take place in the center of Helsinki from 16 till 20 June 2019. For updates and more information, please check out the official event website!


We are a part of the Nordic Consortium for CO2 Conversion (NordCO2), a network for Nordic researchers working on chemical CO2 conversion in the Nordic countries. In December 2017 NordForsk granted the center funding through the Nordic University Hub call.
