Robert Schlögl enters his well-deserved retirement more

A worthy inauguration

A worthy inauguration

March 16, 2023

On 14 March 2023, Robert Schlögl, Director of the Department of Inorganic Chemistry at the Fritz Haber Institute, was officially inaugurated as the new President of the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation.

Dr. Mariana Monteiro receives a Minerva Fast-Track Fellowship

Dr. Mariana Monteiro was awarded a Minerva Fast Track position by the Max Planck Society to establish her first research group “Electrode-electrolyte interfaces” at the Interface Science Department of the Fritz Haber Institute in Berlin. This electrochemist was selected for her excellent research in electrocatalysis, and her new group will focus on fundamentally understanding the electrochemical interface of earth-abundant electrocatalysts.

Two honorary doctorates for exceptional research

In the end of January 2023, Robert Schlögl, Director of the Department for Inorganic Chemistry at the Fritz Haber Institute, had the honor and privilege to receive not one but two honorary doctorates. The Technical University of Darmstadt and the University of Messina presented the major awards for his outstanding contributions on the research on catalysis.

Visit from the next generation of female scientists

On December 01, the Fritz Haber Institute hosted the seminar NATürlich Studium! – Schülerinnen treffen Naturwissenschaftlerinnen in cooperation with the Schülerlabor NatLab of the Freie Universität Berlin. In this seminar series, girls meet female scientists in the fields of biology, chemistry and pharmacy to get an overview of cutting-edge research and to learn about possible career paths. The seminar series is offered each semester and is targeted to girls from 10th grade onwards who are interested in natural sciences and consider studying in the field. Carla Kirschbaum, a PhD student in the Molecular Physics Department, lead the participants through the exciting day.

The Future of Physical Chemistry:

For two days, on the 10th and 11th of January 2023, the Fritz Haber Institute of the Max Planck Society hosted the symposium on “chemical dynamics at extended scales”. The FHI focuses primarily on surface and interface science and the development of new methods to study chemical processes. To identify and discuss the upcoming fields and topics for the next decades, distinguished experts in physical chemistry and chemical physics were invited. more

Celebrating great minds and research

In recollection of the Nobel Prize in Chemistry for Gerhard Ertl, which he received in 2007, the Chemistry community in Berlin celebrates this event with a special prize, the “Gerhard Ertl lecture”. Since 2008 numerous excellent and well-known awardees from all over the world delivered a lecture on their work in Physical Chemistry. more
