Welcome to Tarascon’s group

The Solid State Chemistry and Energy lab (UMR CNRS 8260) is headed by Prof. Jean-Marie Tarascon, a principal researcher and lecturer at Collège de France, Paris. The group’s goal is to meet the needs of sustainable development in regards to application such as lithium-ion, lithium-air and sodium-ion batteries as well as electrocatalysis.


The lab is a joint research entity under the aegis of Université Pierre et Marie Curie, CNRS and Collège de France. The group’s advances are made possible by a team of 20 enthusiastic researchers, postdocs and students. The staff comprises Dr. Alexis Grimaud, Dr. Daniel Alves Dalla Corte and Dr. Gwenaelle Rousse.


Jean-Marie Tarascon is also the head of the French network on electrochemical energy storage (RS2E) a research network on batteries and spercapacitors that brings together 17 French research labs, 15 industrials and 3 public organizations. The lab is also part of the european research network Alistore-ERI that funds several students.
