JARA – Jülich Aachen Research Alliance

Focusing Expertise - Shaping the Future
In the Jülich Aachen Research Alliance (JARA), RWTH Aachen University and Forschungszentrum Jülich pool their outstanding expertise in five research sections, a JARA-Center and four

JARA-Instituts.These common efforts open up new research opportunities and facilitate projects that would not be attainable for either of the partners on their own. Furthermore, their attention is always focused on the grand challenges facing society.

An international team of researchers, led by JARA-ENEGRY scientist Prof. Walter Leitner, has been able to publish results on a rationally designed catalyst that is fully reversible and adapts in real time to changes in the reaction system. In this way, the system enables the selective generation of different products depending on the hydrogen source.
