680th Wilhelm and Else Heraeus Seminar on „Materials Development for Automotive Propulsion“

We are delighted to announce the interdisciplinary WE Heraeus Meeting on “Materials Development in Automotive Propulsion” to be held in the Physikzentrum Bad Honnef from Sunday, Oct 14th to Wednesday, Oct 17th.

During this meeting, scientists working in the broad fields of Batteries, Synthetic Fuels (SynFuels) and Fuel Cells will come together to discuss the latest trends in these fields in academia and industry. Due to a limited number of participants (around 80), an intimate format and ideal platform is achieved allowing ideal visibility, fruitful discussions and efficient networking opportunities.

Highlights of the meeting include:

  • Invited Talks given by international experts in the field/s
  • Contributing Talks by younger researchers
  • 1-3 Poster Awards
  • 1 Award for the most instructional lecture (Contributing Talk)
  • Child Care options to support parents with (young) children

We are truly looking forward to seeing you at this meeting,

Christina Birkel, Ulrike Kramm and Bai-Xiang Xu


The seminar is generously funded by the Wilhelm and Else Heraeus-Foundation, a private German institution which supports scientific research and education with emphasis on physics.
