• Focus

    The second Materials Challenges for Fuel Cells and Hydrogen Technologies: from innovation to industry Workshop will take place in Grenoble (France) from 19th to 21th September 2016, hosted by Nano-CAT, a European project funded by the FCH-JU Programme under the EU 7th Framework Programme for Research and Technological Development (FP7).

    The 2016 edition intends to build on the success of the first Workshops (March 2012) to: 
    1. Highlight key results of the research and innovation (R&I) projects supported by various programs of FP7 and Horizon 2020 (the current EU Framework Programme for Research and Innovation 2017-2020) in the field of material for Fuel Cell and Hydrogen (FCH) and review their technology readiness level (TRL) in a value-chain approach.
    2. Give an updated overview of the portfolio of projects in the FCH field to bring forward the global picture of FCH R&I in Europe and highlight the impact of advanced materials toward for a widespread of the FCH technologies.
    3. Identify common R&I priorities for bridging the gap between advanced materials and the successful commercialization of innovative products and industrial technologies.
    4. Provide a forum for discussion, problem solving and planning of R&I activities in Eu¬rope and give key recommendations on future R&I needs in the FCH domain. including cross-cutting topics (engineering and upscaling, characterization, modelling, standardization) 
    5. Enable the materials, nanotechnologies & FCH communities in Europe to develop strategic collaborations and industrial partnerships. 
    6. Review the existing materials, nanotechnologies and FCH roadmaps to support the deve¬lopment of FCH industry, and to implement them in Horizon 2020.
