The final objective of the EU-Project FURTHER-FC is to support and promote the manufacturing and deployment of fuel cell vehicles, through the specification and design of better performing and more durable Membrane Electrode Assembly (MEA) as core and critical component for the electrochemical conversion in Polymer Electrolyte Fuel Cells (PEMFCs).


FURTER-FC started on 01.01.2020

The consortium is pleased to announce that the EU-funded project started on January 1st, 2020.

First FURTER-FC workshop

Our first public workshop was held on July 6, 2022 (09:00-17:00, CEST) at the German Aerospace Center in Stuttgart, Germany with about 140 registered participants (face-to-face and online). 

We had top-class international speakers (Many thanks for presenting your research!) and a great audience.

About Further-FC

PEMFC is the promising technology for automotive applications with a large deployment horizon by 2030. However, in view of extending their use to a broad range of customers, progress have to be done in terms of cost, performance and durability.

The FURTHER-FC project aims at understanding performance limitations due to the coupling between electrochemical and transport issues in the Cathode Catalyst Layer (CCL) which is the main bottleneck for future PEMFC
