As a research and education assistant at ICC, Tess van Eeden offers support for various educational tasks, e.g. editing a study book written by prof. dr. ir. Bert Weckhuysen which will be used for the third-year Catalysis course at Utrecht University. She will also help shaping a new interdisciplinary Honours programme called the Da Vinci project, where students with different backgrounds work together on sustainability related challenges commissioned by various stakeholders. Furthermore, she’ll assist with the construction of the so-called demonstrators. These small-scale set-ups simulate (applications of) the research performed here at ICC. This way, we can show people and institutions outside ICC what we do here and why this is so interesting and socially relevant.
