For his research on organic batteries, Prof. Ulrich S. Schubert @UniJena@twitter.com receives an ERC Advanced Grant @ERC_Research@twitter.com of around 2.5 million euros. Congratulations @Schubert_Group@twitter.com! 🥳
The funding will further strengthen #Jena as a centre of innovation for polymers in energy applications. This once again confirms the decision of the Free State of #Thuringia @firstname.lastname@example.org to set up and financially support the #CEECJena, in which the research will be conducted.
Schubert and his team want to look for new molecules and combine them with the improvement of current polymer materials at the molecular level. As a result, new properties should become possible, e.g., new photo-rechargeable batteries.
