Tapping into world-leading expertise and facilities in Germany and Canada, the German-Canadian Materials Acceleration Centre offers one of the top innovative and agile ecosystems in energy materials science. The underlying research capabilities to enable robotic materials acceleration platforms (MAPs) spans from fundamental materials theory and modelling, interfacial electrochemistry, AI-enabled materials (inverse) design, high-throughput computational and experimentation methods, design-to-device workflow, data science and analytics, and advanced characterization tools and methods. GCMAC aligns its R&D strategy with the global transition towards a de-fossilized, decentralized, efficient, and economically viable energy infrastructure.
