High entropy alloys, as a fundamentally new material design concept, are a rapidly growing field of research in recent years with a wide range of possibilities for tailoring new materials with interesting combinations of properties. These almost unlimited design options are based on the alloy structure of five or more elements, which can often be present in simple crystal structures. After the original focus on mechanical properties, the functional properties of this exciting class of materials are now coming to the fore. Current examples are high entropy alloys for electrocatalysis, hydrogen storage and magnetic applications as well as high entropy oxides for batteries. The workshop will briefly introduce the basics of high entropy materials and then discuss the most exciting developments in the field of functional materials.
