The Instituto de Tecnología Química (ITQ) is a joint research centre created in 1990 by the Universitat Politècnica de València (UPV) and the Consejo Superior de Investigaciones Científicas (CSIC) located at the UPV Campus.
The ITQ is an international reference centre in the area of catalysis and new materials (specially zeolites) and also in photochemistry.
Jobs and Scholarships
ITQ offers contracts and scholarships that constitute an important opportunity for the professional development of applicants, and represents a world of opportunities where research and training can be done in an international and multidisciplinary environment.
The Institute seeks to encourage young people to carry out scientific projects at the highest level to become scientific leaders worldwide.
The Institute of Chemical Technology focuses its research activity in four main areas: energy, sustainability, health and water.
These are very wide areas but one of the characteristics of ITQ is its capability to direct its research effort to solve actual problems that the society is interested on or worried about.
The ITQ scientists have a wide range of facilities that offer latest generation scientific technologies and services, designed to incorporate most innovative technologies.
These facilities are a key asset for our research, which allows the Institute to obtain outstanding results.
Academic publications in scientific journals are the materialization of the generation of knowledge, one of the main objectives of the ITQ.
The ITQ Equality Commission was created in December 2018, and in April 2021 it became an official working group of the institute’s board.
The main line of work of the Commission focuses on the role of women in science in general, and on their situation in the ITQ in particular, although it is not the only one, dealing with any other issue that arises and may generate inequalities in our environment.
