Welcome to the website of the German Israeli Battery School
A bilateral international cooperation between Israel and Germany was established to promote young academics within the field of eletrochemistry. The socalled "German Israeli Battery School (GIBS)" is coordinated by the Justus Liebig University and founded by the BMBF. Main involved partners at the German site are scientists of the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology, the Hemholtz Institute Münster (MEET), the Technical University Munich and the Justus Liebig University Gießen. Moreover on the Israeli site the Battery School is strongly supported and founded by the MOST and scientists of the Technion and the Universities of Tel Aviv, Jerusalem, Bar Ilan and the Ben Gurion University of the Negev are involved. All senior speakers are leading scientists in the fields of electrochemial energy technologies and materials.
All phD and postdoc-participants were selected with regards to their scientific field within electrochemistry and battery research and based on their personal qualification and motivation. For the first GIBS the maximum number of 25 participates was invited to Israel. Simultaneously the same seletion process allowed to appoint 25 young scientists in Israel.
Main toppics for both symposia are new concepts for high performance batteries and fuel cells. Moreover principal questions about the energy supply of the future and innovative electrochemical energy concepts are presented and discussed controversially.
