Who we are
The CEEC Jena is an interfaculty center of the Friedrich Schiller University Jena with the participation of the Faculty of Chemistry and Earth Sciences and the Faculty of Physics and Astronomy as well as the Fraunhofer Institute for Ceramic Technologies and Systems IKTS Hermsdorf as a non-university initial partner in research and teaching.
The CEEC Jena offers comprehensively equipped laboratories for the preparation of various materials, such as ceramics, polymers, carbons and organic compounds, as well as excellent facilities for the characterization of the materials and complete cells. Thus, the researchers are able to study batteries, supercapacitors and organic solar cells in detail, developing the next generation of energy storage and conversion technologies.
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 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.
