The Berzelius Prize is awarded by the Nordic Catalysis Society in the honor of the Swedish researcher Berzelius who coined the word ‘catalysis’. The prize winner has to be aged under 45 years and working in a Nordic country.

Associate Prof. Jeppe V. Lauritsen from iNANO, Aarhus University was proposed by the Danish representatives of the Nordic Catalysis Society, and he is awarded the prize for his contributions within interface and surface science studies of heterogeneous catalysis.

"I am excited and honored to receive the Berzelius Prize. The prize is a great recognition of the work from my research group aimed at understanding the atomic-scale processes happening on a surface during a catalytic reaction," says Jeppe V. Lauritsen.

The prize is normally given at the biannual Nordic Symposium on Catalysis, but due to corona lockdown the award lecture in given online Wednesday Feb 3rd at 11.00-12.00. Interested are asked to contact to receive an invitation to the online lecture.
