CELEST Logo
Launch of Center for Electro- chemical Energy Storage

The Center for Electrochemical Energy Storage Ulm & Karlsruhe CELEST reinforces joint research on high-performance and environmentally friendly energy storage systems. The activities will range from fundamental research toward the development of new battery technologies and technical applications with a particular focus on training early career researchers.The platform was co-founded by KIT, Ulm University, and the Center for Solar Energy and Hydrogen Research Baden-Württemberg. YIN members Dr. Julia Maibach and Dr. Dominic Bresser are among the (co-)spokespersons.

YIN Insight 2017/18
YIN Insight 2017/18 online with new insights

100 Million euro initial third-party funding, 4,000 weekly teaching hours per semester, and 2,800 peer-reviewed articles – the 10-year statistic speaks for itself. The jubilee edition of the annual magazine YIN Insight further presents the hot topic “The what and why of young investigator programs” with interviews of six funding agencies. The scientific highlights include a recent ERC starting grant, the inauguration of the KATRIN neutrino experiment, and the excellence cluster POLiS. The YIN grants showcase exciting collabo- rations within the network.

Inkjet-Printed Perovskite Photovoltaics
Perovskite photovoltaics – flexible in shape and color

In the project PRINTPERO, German and Greek researchers have teamed up with industrial partners to develop printed perovskite semi-conductors for building integrated photovoltaics. In ACS Applied Energy Materials, they report how a strong color perception can be achieved by inkjet-printing luminescent layers on top of the Perovskite solar cells at a relatively small (∼17%) reduction of power conversion efficiency. Gerardo Hernandez-Sosa and Ulrich Paetzold, both YIN members, added their know-how in electronic printing and photovoltaics respectively.

YIN record: Five new Professors in six months

Five YIN members have taken on new positions as professors within the last six months. Anne Koziolek has just been announced professor for software engineering at KIT. Petra Schwer is now professor for geometry at the University Magdeburg. Bastian Rapp relocated to Freiburg University starting as professor for Process Technology. Frank Schröder has become assistant professor at the University of Delaware. And Cornelia Lee-Thedieck was welcomed as professor for cell biology at the University Hannover. Congratulations! As of now, there are 50 professors among YIN alumni (49%).

YIN workshops
YIN Continuing Education 2019 with new workshop

"Negotiating with Confidence", "Challenging Leadership Situations", and "Mastering Conflicts" are three new topics addressed by the YIN continuing education program 2019 - now online. Scheduled are also well-established workshops like "Leadership Excellence" or "Appointment Procedures". YIN continuing education is specially tailored for early-stage academic leaders including leadership skills, project and personnel management, as well as personal development. Small sized groups and expert consultants stand for the high quality of the program.

Overview
HEiKA
Two new HEiKA projects for YIN members in 2019

Dr. Frank Biedermann and Dr. Ulrich Paetzold each run a collaborative project supported by the Heidelberg Karlsruhe Strategic Partnership (HEiKA). Frank Biedermann and Prof. Thomas Kuner plan to apply artificial neurotransmitter receptors  for the monitoring of dopamine levels in neuronal tissues as well as in prefrontal cortex and basal nuclei of intact mice. Ulrich Paetzold and JProf. Yana Vaynzof aim to utilize the inkjet printing deposition method for fabrication of high yield and high performance perovskite solar cells. Since 2013, YIN members have been involved in 11 HEiKA projects.
