Workshop

The ENDURANCE team invites you to participate in the workshop "Degradation Mechanisms in Solid Oxide Cells and Systems" | February 17, 2017 | Barcelona, Spain

Barcelona Workshop

Aim

The aim of the workshop is to ensure a platform for professional discussions and exchange of expertise in one of the most challenging issues in the commercialization of SOFC: degradation and durability. Different aspects covering cell components, seals and interconnectors, as well as stacks and systems will be discussed. Diverse approaches will be presented: from modeling and prediction of degradation, through experimental confirmation and observations to diagnostic tools for early detection and mitigation strategies.

Organization

The workshop is co-organized by five FCH JU projects: ENDURANCE, DIAMOND, SOPHIA, SOCTESQA and ECo. It will gather high-level researchers and industrial representatives involved in the development and market introduction of solid oxide cell systems.

Date & Location

The workshop will take place on February 17, 2017 in the Catalonia Hotel, in the center of the city of Barcelona.

Fee

There is no registration fee.
