Maintaining a sustainable future and tackling climate change requires the entire society’s efforts, particularly for the phase out of fossil fuels in all energy sectors. Electrocatalysis enables the electrification of fuel and chemical production using renewable energy sources, and is therefore key for this clean energy transition. The success of electrocatalysis relies on the intricate interfaces of porous electrode structures with reactants, products, and ion conducting phases, which drive the energy conversion reactions and determine system energy efficiency. Understanding and improving these complex interfaces demands a collaborative effort across various natural, material and engineering science domains, ranging from fundamental electrochemistry to applied research involving technical catalysts, porous catalyst layers, and advanced cell configurations.
The Electrocatalysis Symposium 2024 is the continuation of the International Symposia Series on Electrocatalysis, which was started in 2010.
It aims to assemble world-leading researchers in their respective fields and key industry players to disseminate recent research advancements and address timely challenges for electrocatalysis in complex electrode structures.

About HI ERN and FAU
Helmholtz Institute Erlangen-Nürnberg for Renewable Energy (HI ERN) and Friedrich-Alexander-Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg (FAU) strongly focus on the development of material- and process-based solutions for a climate-neutral, sustainable, and cost-effective utilization of renewable energies. Several institutes work on the structural and functional characterization, modeling, and processing of materials relevant to hydrogen and solar technology. The common goal is the understanding of structure-performance-process relationship on different time and length scales.
