Yury Gogotsi promoted scientific collaboration between the US and Europe through joint research projects and student exchange with researchers in France (U Paul Sabatier, Sorbonne (Paris 7) , Limoges, and CNRS labs), England (Imperial College, Cambridge University, Univ. of Brighton, Univ. Nottingham), Germany (Universities of Karlsruhe, Tuebingen, Bremen, Dresden and Erlangen-Nuremberg), Italy (Univ. Padova and Rome), Sweden (Linkoping Univ.). Results of this collaborative research were published in dozens of paper in peer-reviewed journals ranging from Science and Nature family journals to CARBON. Some of those papers have had a major impact on the development of the capacitive energy storage field.
He has contributed to teaching European students by lecturing as Visiting Professor at Univ. Limoges and Paul Sabatier University, France, as well as giving numerous seminars in European countries.
He has been supportive towards the future generation of European scientists by initiating student exchange/visit programs with Ukraine (National Technical Universities - Kiev Polytechnic) and Russia (Moscow State University). Hosted students, post-docs and faculty from UK, Germany, France, Switzerland, Turkey and other European countries. One of his German PhD students, Sebastian Osswald, won the prestigious CARBON-Elsevier award for the best PhD thesis on Carbon materials (given once in 3 years). He also helped the Erasmus Mundus Master Program in Materials for Energy (MESC) reach to the US by bringing Drexel University as an official US partner in 2011 (currently 3 MESC students are doing MS thesis research at Drexel).
Consulted for Arkema and ABB contributing to development of advanced material technologies in Europe.
Invitations to present numerous invited and keynote talks at conferences in Europe, including the World Conference on CARBON, British Carbon Group meetings, Carbon Materials for Energy and other events show that the recipient is highly respected by his European colleagues.
He provides service to carbon science community in Europe and worldwide as an editor of CARBON (Elsevier).
