Research cooperations

In order to advance the energy turnaround, our institute is involved in numerous research projects. We collaborate with many other scientific institutions and industrial companies. Please visit our project list to get an overview of our projects, cooperations and collaborations in clusters of excellence.

For example, one large joint project is Carbon2Chem ®, a joint project of 17 partners from industry and science which aims at reducing CO2 efficiently. CEC Director Prof. Schlögl is the scientific coordinator of the project. more
