This issue introduces the National Center of Competence in Research, NCCR Catalysis (nccr-catalysis.ch). Funded by the Swiss National Science Foundation (SNSF), ETH Zurich and EPFL, and other contributions, the goal of the NCCR Catalysis is to identify and develop sustainable routes for manufacturing chemicals from renewable platforms across the value chain. The project brings together top scientists with diverse expertise combining advanced approaches in chemistry with modern tools like digitalization to accelerate the discovery, understanding, and implementation of novel catalysts and processes. Since its launch in August 2020, the consortium has grown to 47 Principal Investigators across 13 institutions, with over 200 members. Selected projects are presented in this issue to illustrate the diverse research areas.
