The Center for Enabling New Technologies Through Catalysis (CENTC), a National Science Foundation Center for Chemical Innovation, is sponsoring a summer school to be held July 22-26, 2013 on the University of Washington campus in Seattle. The five-day program will feature pedagogical presentations by a diverse group of professionals focused on the process of innovation in catalysis and the chemical sciences from basic research to market. In addition, mini-workshops on proposal writing and intellectual property and patents will be featured.
