IEK-9 Symposium

01 Feb 2013

Location: Forschungszentrum Jülich GmbH, Building 04.7, Lecture theatre

“IEK-9: Fundamental Electrochemistry” is the latest sub-institute under the umbrella of the Institute for Energy and Climate Research and strengthens the Jülich activities in the field of energy research with focus on the fundamentals of future systems for electrochemical energy storage and conversion.

Headed by Prof. Eichel since October 2012, IEK-9 organises its first symposium at Forschungszentrum Jülich to introduce the sub-institute to all colleagues and the interested public. The talks will give an insight into current research highlights as well as into challenges to be overcome for a sustainable energy future from the perspective of fundamental research. Novel concepts for high energy-density batteries, degradation phenomena in solid-oxide fuel cells and the development of advanced ‘in-operando’ methods to investigate the underlying mechanisms are the main topics.

Prof. Yair Ein-Eli, Technion-Israel Institute of Technology
