Professor Gabriele Centi is full professor of Industrial Chemistry at the University of Messina, Italy, and President of the European Research Institute of Catalysis (ERIC) and of the International Association of Catalysis Societies (IACS). He is also vice-President of the European Federation of Catalysis Societies (EFCATS) and of the InterUniversity Consortium on the Science and Technology of Materials (INSTM). Research interests are in the areas of applied heterogeneous catalysis, chemical reaction engineering, and reaction mechanisms. Recent focus in on CO2 utilization, novel chemical processes driven from renewable energy and development of photoelectrocatalytic devices. He is Chair of editorial board of ChemSusChem, Co-editor in chief of Journal of Energy Chemistry, Chief Editor of the Book Series Studies in Surface Science and Catalysis (Elsevier) and Green Energy (De Gruyter), and member of the Editorial Board of various journals, between which the Chinese Journal of Catalysis. He was Chairperson of the International Zeolite and Mesoporous Materials conference (IZC16 & IMMS7), Sorrento July, 2010 and is chair of Europacat 2017 in Florence. He received various awards, the most recent being the Gold Medal Stanislao Cannizzaro of the Italian Chemical Society in 2017. He also received the Fellow award of the European Chemical Societies - ChemPubSoc Europe (F CPSE). He published several reviews on catalysis and green energy, and is author of over 450 scientific publications, and 22 books and special issues of international journals. He give over 100 plenary and keynote lectures at international
