ERC Synergy Grant: Directed Evolution of Catalysts

Type of Funding: EU Integrated Research Projects, Others

Hydrogen is considered the energy carrier of the future. To produce it, reactions have to be catalysed, some of which take place under extreme conditions. Previous electrocatalysts usually cannot withstand this for long – new materials are needed that are both powerful and durable, and ideally do not contain expensive and scarce elements. A Danish-German-Swiss research consortium is systematically taking a new approach in the project “Directed Evolution of Metastable Electrocatalyst Interfaces for Energy Conversion“, or DEMI for short.
