The Solid State Chemistry and Energy (Chimie du Solide et Energie, CSE) lab (UMR CNRS 8260) is headed by Prof Jean-Marie Tarascon, a principal researcher and lecturer at Collège de France in Paris, France. The group’s goal is to meet the needs of sustainable development in regards to energy applications such as lithium-ion, lithium-air and sodium-ion batteries as well as electrocatalysis. The group’s advances are made possible by a team of 25 enthusiastic researchers, postdocs and students.
The CSE lab is a joint research entity and was founded under the aegis of the Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique (CNRS), the Université Pierre et Marie Curie (now Sorbonne Université) and the Collège de France.
The CSE lab is also part of the French network on electrochemical energy storage (RS2E) – headed by Prof Jean-Marie Tarascon – and the European research network ALISTORE-ERI which fund several students.
