Jean-Marie Tarascon (1953) is Professor at the College de France holding the chair “Chemistry of solids – Energy).  But much of his early career was spent in the United States where he developed (1994) the plastic Li-ion technology. Back to France in 1995, he created the European network of excellence ALISTORE-ERI of which he was head until 2010 when he took over the direction of the new LABEX “STORE-EX” .
