ENDURANCE is an innovative new project funded under the European Fuel Cells and Hydrogen Joint Undertaking.

ENDURANCE stands for ENhanced DURability materials for Advanced stacks of New solid oxide fuel CElls.

ENDURANCE aims to develop reliable predictive models to estimate long-term (20 thousand hours and more) performance and probability of failure of solid oxide fuel cell stacks based on existing materials.

ENDURANCE is original because it proposes to detect the earliest signals of fuel cell stack failure and actually "heal" it before happening through Early Warning Output Signals triggered counterstrategies.

ENDURANCE is beneficial because it will allow for the production of solid oxide fuel cell stacks with extended lifetime and reduced maintenance costs using existing materials.
