The proposed training-through-research programme aims to develop novel materials for energy storage applications that would overcome the performance limitations related to the existing materials systems. This will be tackled by fabricating and characterizing recently discovered ABC antiferroelectrics which have never been previously synthesized. The novel materials will be studied in their crystalline form, and additionally glass-ceramics with the coexistence of ABC crystalline and glassy phases will be sintered and characterized, with the aim of improving electrical breakdown strength and energy density properties. The fellowship programme contains a series of complementary experimental training and several activities that will strengthen dissemination, project management and leadership skills of the fellow and it represents an excellent opportunity to prepare the ground for an independent research career. The exploitation of the present research is ensured by a solid scientific and industrial network connected to the fellow and to the host institution.
