Fzj

Institute of Energy and Climate Research - Theory and Computation of Energy Materials

Director:

Prof. Dr. rer. nat. Michael Eikerling

Short name:

IEK-13

Info:

IEK-13 research programs offer ample interfaces for model evaluation by comparison to experiments, knowledge transfer to materials science laboratories, and testing and analytics of innovative materials in functional energy devices. Collaboration with experimental groups and industry will provide opportunities to transform theoretical findings into better and purpose-designed materials that are less expensive to make, more efficient during operation, and longer lasting. Overall, the programs support the development of efficient, environmentally benign, and economically viable energy technologies. Scientific programs will be complemented by the development of a Materials Intelligence platform for the extraction, analytics, visualization and demonstration of materials properties, enabled by methods of Artificial Intelligence.

Profile Area ECPE

The provision of sustainable energy and materials is clearly one of the major global challenges which were identified in the future strategy of RWTH Aachen University. The profile area Energy, Chemical & Process Engineering (ECPE) addresses the two most important pathways to achieve this goal: Improvements in energy and material efficiency and the transition to renewable sources.

More information on the profile area's key topics can be found here.

RWTH Aachen Profile Areas

RWTH Aachen University is convinced that in order to solve today's complex and multi-faceted problems, universities have to develop appropriate, integrated approaches. The Profile Areas are designed to address interdisciplinary topics and thus to enhance the University’s capability to engage in significant research activities and take on large-scale projects.
