    Addressing Scientific Challenges Towards Mitigating Climate Change
    Moderated by Prof. Robert Schlögl (Fritz-Haber-Institut)

    It is an urgent need to reduce our global carbon dioxide emissions to mitigate climate change. While low-cost electricity from solar and wind provides exciting opportunities to reduce emissions, converting electricity to efficient carbon-free or carbon-neutral energy carriers at scale such as stored electrons, fuels and heat remains challenging to deep decarbonization. Electrochemical reactions are central to electrification via batteries, electrolysis in making chemicals, fuels and materials, and negative emission technologies, which represent three important capabilities to connect electricity with our energy demands. Fundamental research on surface and molecular sciences, electron/ion transfer, and ion transport is instrumental to address scientific challenges and make breakthroughs in the core technologies such as lithium batteries and production of hydrogen-based carriers and metals.

    In this lecture, we will address scientific challenges and recent progress in regulating surface oxygen activity and tuning interfacial hydrogen bonds to enhance the functions of lithium batteries, and electrocatalysis of water splitting.

  • FAIRmat Colloquium (Barend Mons)

    Barend Mons

    Barend Mons will talk about How to materialise FAIR. First, he will share with us the experiences of the early implementation phase of the FAIR guiding principles: He will give a brief historical review, address how FAIR became a hype term (already more than 5000 citations in the 2016 article) and how this also distracted FAIR from its core at some points. He then will zoom in on lessons learned, and how to make FAIR ‘materialise’.  Finally, he will make a plea for proper and well-budgeted data stewardship plans, compliant with the FAIR guiding principles for each and every research project we may contemplate (yes already when we contemplate, not in hindsight!).

    Public Lecture at BESSY@HZB User Meeting: CatLab

    Prof. Robert Schlögl (Fritz-Haber Institut)

    The Public Lecture on "Sustainable Fuels: BESSY enables conceptual approaches", which Prof. Dr. Robert Schlögl kindly accepted to present, will certainly be a highlight of this year's programme.

    "The energy challenge will require to a massive extent the use of sustainable generated molecules as energy carriers. Hydrogen is the primary platform molecule. It can come from water splitting but also for dehydrogenation reaction of fossil and biological hydrocarbons as long as no CO2 is co-generated.
    But hydrogen is not the best energy carrier when considered for long-distance transport and for distributed end use. This derivatives of hydrogen such as ammonia, LOHC and alcohols generated from unavoidable CO2 and hydrogen will play an important role in future energy systems.
    The conversion of free electrons in molecules and its further derivatisation is unthinkable without catalysis. Interfacial catalysis will play the dominant role. As well as we understand today the interface between a solid and its surrounding reactants, as poor is our understanding about the other functional interfaces in the system. Here the project CatLab will make a strategic contribution. Based on the dynamic action of the heterogeneous interface it is of utmost importance to prevent undesired surface phase changes during operation that de-activate the working catalyst. This is controlled through the buried interfaces present in the system. These are the targets to be studied and modified synthetically within the Catlab project. The presentation will indicate the underlying science concept and illustrate how Catlab works as cooperation project between HZB and MPG supported by additional partners."

    The digital world forgets nothing, a common saying claims. However, anyone who has ever tried to find data that is only a few years old on the global web and then reuse it with up-to-date software knows that digital information can very well get lost. To ensure that this does not happen to valuable research data, numerous players in science are currently working on making this data as FAIR as possible - findable, accessible, interoperable and reusable.

    Abstract: Funders, publishers, and data service providers have strongly endorsed applying FAIR principles to maximize the reuse of research data since the principles were published in 2016. Much of existing work on FAIR assessment focuses on ‘what’ needs to be measured, which led to the development of assessment metrics. However, the questions of ‘how’ to measure the FAIRness of the research data and use the assessment results to improve data reuse haven't been fully demonstrated in yet practice. This presentation will cover some insights on these aspects derived from the development of a practical solution (F-UJI) to measure the progress of FAIR aspects of data programmatically.

    Nanoelectronic Phenomena in Low-Dimensional Ferroelectrics

    Professor Alexei Gruverman

    Professor Alexei Gruverman is, from April 2022 and for few months, the guest of the Helmholtz-Zentrum Berlin. He was granted a Humboldt Research Award in October 2020 (but could not travel to Germany until this year due to the COVID pandemic). The Humboldt Research Award recognizes his outstanding research achievements in the field of fundamental studies of nanoscale physical phenomena in a wide range of materials using a variety of scanning probe microscopy (SPM) methods. He has pioneered the development of piezoresponse force microscopy (PFM), which since its inception has become a method of choice in both academic and industrial groups  for the investigation of the nanoscale properties of ferroelectrics. Other major scientific accomplishments include the manipulation of ferroelectric domains at the nanoscale, the development of an approach for fast switching dynamics in ferroelectric capacitors, the demonstration of the tunneling electroresistance effect in ferroelectrics and nanoscale studies of electromechanical behavior of biological systems. 

    The Kolloquium will be followed by a buffet (finger food/beverages), which will provide a good opportunity to gather and continue the discussion with him.

    HMC FAIR Friday Lecture Series: Dr Janine Felden (PANGAEA Group Leader, AWI Bremerhaven)

    Dr Janine Felden (PANGAEA Group Leader, AWI Bremerhaven)

    HMC FAIR Friday will feature talks by high-ranking national and international speakers who will bring all participants (even) closer to the world of FAIR data, deepen individual aspects and stimulate discussions.

    The digital world forgets nothing, a common saying claims. However, anyone who has ever tried to find data that is only a few years old on the global web and then reuse it with up-to-date software knows that digital information can very well get lost. To ensure that this does not happen to valuable research data, numerous players in science are currently working on making this data as FAIR as possible - findable, accessible, interoperable and reusable.

    *Registration extended until 15 May* - How to deal with skepticism towards science and technophobia

    The WISTA Management GmbH and the IGAFA in Adlershof in cooperation with the BR50 Offices invite interested scientist to an interdisciplinary exchange about the topic “Doubts as and about the system? How to deal with skepticism towards science and technophobia”. The event will take place on June 28 at 3 pm in Adlershof.

    We are looking forward to registrations out of all scientific fields and disciplines. Who is interested in sharing personal experiences on that topics (in the form of a short five minutes input statement) can indicate that when registering by roughly naming the subject you would like to talk about. Registration is open until May 15 and should be addressed to: pr@wista.de

    In general, skepticism is a constructive attitude in research and science: After all, scientific findings rest onthe fact that gained knowledge is constantly questioned critically to make progress in understanding theworld and its parts. However, the science-immanent culture that doubts all assumptions and theimprovement of research designs as well as the consistently querying of scientific results is often notunderstood in the society, media and politics.

    First International Conference "Challenges on the Renewable Energy Storage"

    Without doubt you will agree with us that the development and deployment of novel energy concept addressing both environmental as well as energy independence concerns is perhaps the largest challenge of chemical industry in the 21st century. As you know from your own experience these issues are subject to discussion of the community for several years now, although the recent Covid-19 pandemic which prevented face to face meeting for the past two years subdued somewhat the information exchange of the topic. The war in Ukraine drastically calls for an even accelerated transformation of our energy system including aspects of energy security.

    Nevertheless, the field of catalysis-supported energy concepts never lost its importance and urgency. The Fritz-Haber Institute of the Max-Planck Society and the J. Heyrovský Institute of Physical Chemistry have worked together on these concepts for a long time. With the support of the new research platform CatLab, we are in a position to facilitate the discussions in the community by organizing the first international conference “Challenges on renewable energy storage”. The conference aims at bringing together leaders of the field in catalysis, electrocatalysis and their technological implementation, fostering the exchange of views on the most recent development and renewing the necessary interdisciplinary networks broken by the pandemic.

    The conference will take place under personal auspices of Mrs. Helena Langšádlová, the Minister of Science, Research and Innovation of the Czech Republic and is listed in the official programme of the Czech presidency to the Council of EU. Consequently, the European funding agencies are expected to be heavily represented along with other important stakeholders.

    We look forward to meeting you in person and to fruitful discussions in August
