Fritz Haber Institute of the Max Planck Society & Humboldt-Universität & TU Berlin

Robert Schlögl has been Director at the Fritz Haber Institute of the Max Planck Society in Berlin since 1994. He studied chemistry and completed his PhD at the Ludwig Maximilians University in Munich. After postdoctoral stays at Cambridge and Basle he carried out his habilitation under the supervision of Professor Ertl at the Fritz Haber Institute in Berlin and was appointed Professor of Inorganic Chemistry at Frankfurt University. Prof Schlögl’s research focuses primarily on the investigation of heterogeneous catalysts based upon inorganic solids with the aim of bridging experimentally the gap between surface science and chemical engineering in the field of oxidation catalysis. He recently also moved into the chemistry of energy storage.
He is the author of over 500 publications and registered inventor of more than 20 patent families. He is a Fellow of the Royal Society of Chemistry, a member of the Berlin-Brandenburg Academy of Sciences and Humanities (BBAW), the German Academy of Science and Engineering (acatech), the German Academy of Sciences Leopoldina as well as member of numerous international organizations. His research activities have been recognized with several international awards.

Up to 20 scientists and leading experts from all over the world and a wide range of disciplines are invited to share insights into their future-changing work at the Falling Walls Conference on 9 November, in front of 700 international guests. In an inspiring, information-packed 15 minutes each, speakers present the core of their breakthroughs – which walls are they helping to tear down and how will it transform our lives?
