Focus of research

Martin Winter has been researching in the field of electrochemical energy storage and conversion for more than 25 years with a focus on the development of new materials, components and cell designs for batteries and supercapacitors, in particular lithium ion batteries. Martin Winter currently holds a professorship for “Materials Science, Energy and Electrochemistry” at the Institute of Physical Chemistry at Muenster University, Germany. The full professorship developed from an endowed professorship funded by the companies Volkswagen, Evonik Industries and Rockwood Lithium from 2008 to 2012.
Moreover, he is the scientific director of the MEET Battery Research Center at Muenster University.

MEET stands for „Münster Electrochemical Energy Technology“ and combines outstanding equipment with an international team of about 150 scientists, engineers and technicians working on the research and development of innovative electrochemical energy storage devices. Since January 2015 he is also director of the Helmholtz-Institute Muenster (HI MS) “Ionics in Energy Storage” with a staff of 70 scientists.

Martin Winter is a highly cited author as recognized by ISI (Clarivate Analytics), The Shanghai Ranking, and Elsevier Scopus. Among more than 30 awards and recognitions, he holds the Carl Wagner Memorial Award of the Electrochemical Society (ECS), has been recipient of the Research and Technology awards of both, the ECS and the International Battery Materials Association (IBA) and is a Fellow of the ECS and the International Society of Electrochemistry (ISE). He also was recognized by the “Braunschweiger Forschungspreis 2016”.
