Center for High Entropy Alloy Catalysis (CHEAC)

CHEAC is a Center of Excellence funded by the Danish National Research Foundation.

CHEAC targets electrochemical reactions for the production of renewable and high-value chemicals where the reaction energy is provided by electricity, thus paving the way for a greener society.



CHEAC Summer School 2023

This year, in August, we host a Summer School on High Entropy Materials and their properties. It is four days of expert lectures, scientific discussions, social activities, and peer networking.
