This Coordination Action seeks to network research activities in Europe on high temperature membrane electrode assemblies and their components. Coordination activities are centred around membranes, catalysts and high temperature MEAs, with cross-cutting activities on the impact of high temperature operation on degradation of MEA components and MEA durability, identification of proton transfer mechanisms operating in water free conditions, and technical specifications for high temperature PEMFC applications . The CARISMA partnership assembles the expertise in high temperature PEMFC in European research institutes and universities and includes committed stakeholders from SMEs, industrial developers of high temperature MEAs, membranes, catalysts, gas diffusion layers, carbon supports, as well as end users of high temperature MEAs and high temperature stacks. The group will interact with the Hydrogen and Fuel cells Platform to refine the Strategic Research Agenda and will facilitate interaction with equivalent g roups in other continents. High temperature membranes and MEAs are a priority area of the Strategic Research Agenda and the International Partnership for a Hydrogen Economy scoping paper on PEMFC, and this timely grouping into a Coordination Action will in crease the impact of on-going Community funded and nationally funded programmes.
