|| Short Bio
Robert Schlögl's research focuses primarily
on the investigation of heterogeneous catalysts, with the aim to
combine scientific with technical applicability as well as on the
development of nanochemically-optimized materials for energy storage.
The application of knowledge-based heterogeneous catalysis for large-scale
chemical energy conversion summarizes his current research focus.
Since 1994 he is Director at the Fritz Haber Institute of the Max
Planck Society in Berlin. In addition, in 2011 he became Founding
Director at the Max Planck Institute for Chemical Energy Conversion
in Mülheim a.d. Ruhr. He is an Honorary Professor at Technical
University Berlin, at Humboldt University Berlin, at University
Duisburg-Essen, at Ruhr University Bochum as well as a Distinguished
Affiliated Professor at TU Munich and Honorary Professor of Boreskov
Institute of Catalysis.
Robert Schlögl is a member of the National Hydrogen Council
and Vice President of the German National Academy of Sciences Leopoldina.
He is a Fellow of the Royal Society of Chemistry, Tetelman Fellow
and member of numerous national and international organizations.
