University of Münster & Helmholtz-Institute Münster
Martin Winter has been researching in the field of electrochemical energy storage and conversion for more than 30 years. His focus is on the development of new materials, components and cell design for lithium ion, lithium-metal batteries and alternative battery systems. Martin Winter currently holds a professorship for “Materials Science, Energy and Electrochemistry” at the Institute of Physical Chem-istry at the University of Münster, Germany. The full professorship developed from an endowed pro-fessorship funded by the companies Volkswagen, Evonik Industries and Chemetall (today Albemarle) from 2008 to 2012.
Martin Winter is founder and scientific director of MEET Battery Research Center at the University of Münster. MEET stands for “Münster Electrochemical Energy Technology “. At MEET, an internation-al team of about 150 scientists, engineers and technicians is working on research and development of innovative electrochemical energy storage devices with higher energy density, longer durability and maximum safety. Since 2015, he is also founding director of the Helmholtz-Institute Münster (HI MS) “Ionics in Energy Storage”, a division of Forschungszentrum Jülich, with about 70 employees. MEET and HI MS are internationally leading institutions in the research and development of innovative elec-trochemical energy storage systems.
