execution dates 2014-07-01 - 2017-06-30 ( 36 Months )

The aim of the project is to provide a world-class fuel cell through combining high-level research expertise and multidisciplinary know-how from leading research groups in EU and India. The project is highly innovative and includes risky research going beyond present state-of-the art in the field. To achieve the aim, three major objectives have been set: 1) through science and technology, solve the scientific basis of multi-functional nanocomposites, developing durable materials, standardizing laboratory measurements practices, and building a 25W test cells, 2) through cooperative models increase the impact and international visibility of research in the fields both in Europe and India; 3) through research training and exchange, educate talented young researchers in leading-edge research in LTCFC technologies and provide international perspectives and, strong networking skills.
