Professor Fabio La Mantia has been invited an episode of the scientific podcast series “Geladen – der Batteriepodcast” on post lithium-ion battery technologies. This podcast is produced by the Helmholtz Institute Ulm (HIU) and the Cluster of Excellence Post-Lithium Storage (POLiS) at Ulm and Karlsruhe and it features dialogues with researchers about electromobility, energy transition and battery research.

In this episode, entitled “Zink-Ionen-Batterien”, Prof La Mantia describes the working principles, the scientific and technological challenges, and the potential high impact of aqueous zinc-ion batteries on the stationary energy storage market and more!

The podcast episode, in German, can be found here:

We are very happy to share our thoughts and research with a broader public!

March 2022

The group recently published a perspective paper in Nature Communications entitled: “Open challenges and good experimental practices in the research field of aqueous Zn-ion batteries” in the frame of the project “ZIB” (FKZ 03XP0204A) financially supported by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF).

The University of Bremen shared an article to highlight further the success of Prof. La Mantia’s group in the frame of its research activities on this novel green battery chemistry: On the Path to the Next Generation of Energy Storage Systems

We are very happy with the resonance achieved by our research!

Professor Fabio La Mantia has been awarded with the highly competitive Supervision Award* from the University of Bremen, for his outstanding supervision of the PhD students of his group. Congratulations!

*The award for outstanding doctoral supervision is given to university professors and other eligible academics for their professional and encouraging support of doctoral candidates. It is worth 4000 Euros. The award honors both the demanding task of doctoral supervision and exemplary empowerment of early-career scholars. A further objective of the award is to promote a high standard of doctoral supervision as per the position paper “Qualitätssicherung der Promotion an der Universität Bremen” (‘Quality assurance in doctoral studies at the University of Bremen’) from May 2015.

The jury bestows the award and prize money of 2000 Euro each upon two supervisors, one from the arts and social sciences and one from the natural sciences and engineering. The prize money is sponsored by Alumni der Universität Bremen e.V and awarded for the specific purpose of facilitating the success of doctoral candidates.
