General Assembly approves realignment
At the POLiS General Assembly, the members approved the research and structural realignment already agreed at the end of last year. In the future, the cluster will additionally focus on topics such as potassium batteries, organic redox systems and AI-supported virtual simulations. In addition, technology transfer to industry will be strengthened by carrying out modeling from battery materials to full cells and by producing complete cells for sodium-ion and magnesium batteries. The meeting voted to introduce the new research unit "X" for cross-cutting topics. Furthermore, the new PIs Prof. Birgit Esser, Prof. Ulrike Krewer, Prof. Alexander Kühne and Prof. Max von Delius presented their research. At the end of the meeting, the cluster spokespersons were confirmed and new research area leaders were elected.
