Daimler und Benz Stiftung (2023-2024)

The project sponsored by the Daimler and Benz Foundation for two years to support the development of novel layered oxide cathode materials for sodium-ion batteries.

YIN Award 2023

The KIT’s Young Investigator Network (YIN) supports a collaborative research project on solid-state batteries between the Fleischmann group and the group of Florian Strauss at KIT-INT.

NanoconEC (2022-2025)

The DFG-funded project “NanoconEC” (project No. 513327636) aims to create a fundamental understanding of electrochemical charge storage processes at nanoconfined interfaces. Model layered host electrode materials will be employed to study the impact of nanoconfinement geometry on the electrochemical process of lithium ion intercalation. The goal is to observe and understand whether charge storage phenomena can deviate in nanoconfinement from the strict binary of either electric double-layer capacitance or Faradaic reaction.

InfinBAT (2021-2026)

The project “InfinBAT” (grant No. 03XP0423), funded by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF), was awarded to Simon as part of the NanoMatFutur competition as funding for a junior research group over a duration of five years. Within the project, interlayer-functionalized materials are developed as novel electrodes in high power intercalation batteries. Skeleton Technologies acts as a consulting partner.
