10 Year Anniversary of HIU

April to October 2021

Exactly 10 years ago, in 2011, the Helmholtz Institute Ulm (HIU) was founded. Since then, top international research of electrochemical cell developments of the next generation have been taking place at the HIU. Since then, the international team of around 130 scientists has been researching the further development of the fundamentals of sustainable energy storage systems for stationary and mobile use.

This year, HIU does not only celebrate its own 10th birthday. Its namesake, Hermann von Helmholtz, will also be celebrated: in 2021 he would have been 200 years old. The HIU accompanies these two occasions with a broad program of celebrations and events.
