The Fuel Science Center

The increasing availability of non-fossil energy technologies is creating numerous new opportunities to redesign the interfaces of energy and material value chains for a sustainable future. The Cluster of Excellence "The Fuel Science Center - Adaptive Conversion Systems for Renewable Energy and Carbon Sources"(FSC) is creating a foundation for the integrated conversion of renewable electricity with biomass-based raw materials and CO2 into "Bio-hybrid Fuels" with its basic research. These are liquid energy carriers with a high energy density that enables highly efficient and clean combustion. The goal is to replace motorized combustion of fossil fuels with adaptive production and drive systems based on renewable energy and alternative carbon sources under dynamic boundary conditions. To achieve this goal, findings and scientific methods are being developed in the FSC.


Sub-Project Equal Opportunities

Within the framework of the Cluster of Excellence "The Fuel Science Center - Adaptive Conversion Systems for Renewable Energy and Carbon Sources" (FSC), the GDI is researching the implementation of a diversity management approach in complex organizational structures. The central task here is the development of a concept within the framework of a system-theoretical approach, which enables the anchoring of the diversity management approach in the organizational culture and structure of the cluster. Mechanisms of human-centered and diversity-sensitive change management will also be applied. In the form of lectures, panel discussions, and workshops, best practice approaches of relevant actors from science and business will be presented and discussed, and the findings of the scientific discourse will be evaluated from a social science perspective.
