Following Max Planck's motto "Insight must precede application", fundamental science at the Max Planck Institute for Chemical Energy Conversion creates a comprehensive understanding of the active sites of catalysts that are essential for the interconversion of energy and chemical bonds.
At MPI CEC, researches from the departments, Max Planck Research Groups, Max Planck Fellows, Scientific Service Groups and the Joint Workspace work hand in hand. They aim at understanding selected chemical reactions, in order to improve and develop catalytical systems and therefore contribute to the transformation of the energy system. Research at MPI CEC
Max Planck Research Groups are an excellent qualification opportunity for junior scientists who have completed their doctorates and enjoy an independent status within the Max Planck Institute. There are currently three Max Planck Research Group Leaders at the MPI CEC: Dr. Viktor Čolić, Dr. George Cutsail III and Dr. Christophe Werlé.
