Technical Communities

A focus for activities in multiple Sectors

The Institute has 22 technical divisions, societies, groups and associations which act as special interest groups, forming a focus for activities within specific sectors. Each of these communities has its own microsite with news, features, events and information relevant to their interests. Visit these Technical Community sites from here.

  • European Spring School on Ceramics for Energy Conversion and Storage

    Mar 18, 2020 - Mar 20, 2020
    , Forschungszentrum Jülich
    Organiser: 
    Institute of Energy and Climate Research

    The Spring School aims at presenting a current overview of ceramic materials and technologies for selected energy applications. A topical focus is put on high-temperature power generation (gas turbines, concentrated solar power) and electrochemical applications based on ionic transport (solid oxide fuel cells, gas separation membranes, electrochemical storage).

    After a brief introduction of each application field including targets for properties, the relevant ceramic materials will be reviewed and evaluated. In order to be integrated in real devices, they need to fulfil numerous, often contradictory conditions, such as highest ionic and/ or electronic conductivity, stability during operation, processability, etc.Read more
