Professor Maarit Karppinen is one of the leading researchers of functional oxide materials in the world. These materials can be applied to new energy technologies conducive to environmental conservation. Prof Karppinen and her research group have developed hundreds of new materials which have been used as components in fuel cells and Li ion batteries, among other things. Other materials can be utilised in future’s thermoelectric devices enabling the production of pure thermal energy directly from lost heat.

The City of Helsinki Scientific Award is granted as recognition for important scientific work carried out by a citizen of Helsinki or done in Helsinki.
