Thematic network on solid oxide fuel cell technology (SOFCNET)

Thematic network on solid oxide fuel cell technology (SOFCNET)

Objective

This proposal suggests the establishment of the thematic network SOFCNET. The objective of SOFCNET is the support and acceleration of European industrial development. By bringing together all types (from universities to end users) of SOFC involved organisations in Europe, the network promotes knowledge exchange, a better understanding of industrial needs and collaboration, particularly on critical issues for the commercialisation of SOFC systems. Further the SOFCNET should result in a more efficient use of EU and national RTD resources and contribute to the realisation of a critical RTD mass for solving European energy related problems. Additionally, a competitive European SOFC industry shall have a positive influence on employment.
