He has been at the College de France since He is also credited with laying foundations of the reputable Erasmus mundus masters course in energy storage and conversion "Materials for energy storage and conversion" hosted by UPJV, Amiens in association with seven universities across the globe and several energy research networks. Tarascon's research  investigates the synthesis of novel electronic phenomena and materials such as superconductors , ferroelectrics , fluoride glasses , rechargeable batteries  and colossal magnetoresistance.
His nomination reads: .
Jean-Marie Tarascon is distinguished for his outstanding leadership in the materials chemistry of energy conversion and storage devices and for seminal studies of high temperature superconductors. His pioneering work on electrode reaction processes that can store more energy than those in conventional lithium-ion batteries , his work on molecular electrodes and his realization of the plastic battery, have changed thinking in the field.
