The ITQ is an international reference centre in catalysis, new materials and photochemistry

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. Due to its excellent fundamental and oriented research level and to its multidisciplinary character, the ITQ has the possibility to develop research in different disciplines having an extraordinary flexibility and capability to adapt itself to new research challenges

The ITQ has specialized personnel as well as forefront facilities for research development in the field of chemical technology and materials.

It has more than two hundred researchers from all over the World including CSIC and UPV research professors, tenured scientists, invited professors but also engineers, technicians, administrative staff and finally many post- and pre-doctoral students.

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 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.
