Junior Professor Ulrike Kramm receives the Heinz Maier-Leibnitz Prize of the DFG


Two of this year's Heinz Maier-Leibnitz Prizes of the German Research Foundation (DFG) go to the TU Darmstadt – to junior professor Ulrike Kramm (40) and assistant professor Michael Saliba (36).

Kramm, a junior professor at TU Darmstadt since March 2015, develops precious metal-free catalysts for energy applications such as fuel cells. The catalysts are inexpensive to produce because they do not use expensive and poorly available precious metals. Since April 2019, Saliba has been teaching and researching at TU Darmstadt in the field of perovskite-based solar cell development, a cost-effective and easy-to-manufacture alternative to classic silicon technology. The prizes are endowed with 20,000 euros each.

We congratulate our member Prof. Kramm and are very pleased !
