Our Goals

components of a battery developed by the CEEC Jena

Concerted efforts and pooled competences to achieve our goals

Innovative ideas are often created by looking beyond the horizon of one’s own field of expertise. Hence, the CEEC Jena pools together the know-how of professorships and working groups from the Faculty of Chemistry and Earth Sciences and the Faculty of Physics and Astronomy of the Friedrich Schiller University Jena as well as the Fraunhofer Institute for Ceramic Technologies and Systems IKTS Hermsdorf. By combining interdisciplinary competences and exploiting synergies, we aim to promote the development of new materials for energy storage, light-energy conversion and clean tech.

Energy Storage

We develop next-generation batteries and supercapacitors, which combine high power densities, maximum flexibility, minimized losses and longevity of the storage systems with optimal environmental compatibility, dependable availability of resources and minimized risk potential.


We work on new photovoltaic systems, such as printable polymer solar cells, as well as on photocatalytic water splitting.

Clean Tech

We focus on various membrane technologies. In addition to plastic-based membranes, ceramic membranes play an important role.

Integrated approach

We go the whole way from application-oriented basic research to the development of prototypes. The goal is not only the research on new energy storage systems but also the subsequent production of these novel high-performance battery units in Germany. Our vision: Our research should be both scientifically but also socially and economically relevant for the region of Thuringia and the whole of Germany.
