Organization profile

Introduction / mission

The mission our group is to advance heat & flow technologies for energy and high-tech applications. This mission encompasses the scientific development of new methods and tools (science); optimizing advanced systems (technology); transferring knowledge to application partners (valorization); and educating and challenging future generations of engineers (education).


Highlighted phrase

Research for advancing the energy transition

Organisational profile

One of today’s most prominent societal challenges is the energy transition. Within the upcoming ten years our society will have to meet stringent CO2 emission targets in order to mitigate climate change. We believe that the solution largely lies in improved storage technologies to cope with diurnal and seasonal renewable energy variations.
