Recipients of 2023 Turbo Grants

We are thrilled to announce the recipients of our first edition of the NCCR Catalysis Turbo Grants! This entrepreneurship program supports early-stage spin-offs in the area of sustainable chemistry and catalysis. All spin-offs are rooted in NCCR Catalysis labs, and this grant enables the researchers to dedicate their time to transitioning their research into a start-up.

We were impressed by the quality of the applications, and are glad to announce the three teams who received a 2023 Turbo Grant:

  • Jan Weinreich from the group of Clémence Corminboeuf at EPFL is working in the area of digital chemistry.
  • Benedikt Winter and Johannes Schilling from the Group of André Bardow at ETH are working in the area of digital chemistry. Since being selected, they have onboarded a third co-founder, Carl Hemprich.
  • Tobias Vornholt from the Thomas Ward group at UniBasel is working in the area of biocatalysis.

Congratulations to the recipients, and we're thrilled to support you as you work on your spin-offs!
