As a scientist, she has set standards; as the founder of the foundation, she has set the course and given scientific data collection a new significance: Dr Barbara Mez-Starck was aware early on of the responsibility that the natural sciences - particularly in the fields of physics and chemistry - have for the sustainable development of society. With the development of MOGADOC as a database for molecular structures in the gas phase and the later addition of an important search function, important foundations were laid. Even today, the modern information system sets a high standard for the development of databases dedicated to the development of sustainable technologies and the challenges of the future. In the meantime, the Dr Barbara Mez-Starck Foundation is proving to be a pacemaker of transformation, also through the promotion of outstanding areas of research:

  • Battery research
  • AI methods
