27 February 2020. The partners for product category 1, ‘Electroceramic thin film’, held their first workshop of the implementation phase on 27 February 2020. Workshop guests included renowned scientists from all over Germany, including leading international experts in the fields of ceramic materials, membranes and catalysis. We would especially like to thank the following people for their keynote speeches and their valuable input for the implementation of CAMPFIRE project plans: Professor Jürgen Caro of the Institute of Physical Chemistry and Electrochemistry at Leibniz University Hannover; Dr Theodor Schneller of the Institut für Werkstoffe der Elektrotechnik II at RWTH Aachen; Dr Ralf Kreigel of the High-Temperature Separation and Catalysis department at Fraunhofer Institute for Ceramic Technologies and Systems (IKTS); Dr Mariya Ivanova of the Gas Separation Membranes Working Group at Forschungszentrum Jülich; and Dr Christian Vedder, specialist in thin-film process technologies in the Thin Film Processing group at the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology (ILT). In the afternoon, participants engaged in an exciting brainstorming session and exchange of ideas to further develop thin-film-based technologies for the production and use of ammonia.
