Cooperation between Helmholtz-Zentrum Berlin (HZB) and Monash University, Melbourne, Australia, is thriving. Now, Monash University has awarded three HZB-scientists with adjunct professorships: Prof. Klaus Lips, Dr. Alexander Schnegg and Prof. Emad Aziz have been working several years already with Prof. Leone Spiccia, an internationally renowned chemist at Monash University, on energy materials science.

Spiccia is investigating artificial photosynthesis in order to develop solutions to convert solar energy into easily storable hydrogen. In 2011 and 2014 he spend time as a guest scientist at HZB working with teams of Lips, Schnegg and Aziz. Numerous publications in high impact journals have been the result of this fruitful collaboration.

As adjunct professors the HZB-scientists are entitled to organise workshops and seminars at Monash University and to further common research projects. To do so, they are given access to the resources of ARC Centre of Excellence for Electromaterials Science at Monash University.
