6th CARISMA International Conference on Medium and High Temperature Proton Exchange Membrane Fuel Cells from 27th– 30th August 2019 in Duisburg

The CARISMA conference series is specifically devoted to the challenges in developing fuel cell materials and membrane electrode assemblies for the medium and high temperature range targeted for transport and stationary applications. The conference will be the opportunity for presentation of recent results, discussion and debate on the solutions sought internationally to the bottlenecks associated with operation at higher temperatures, with an international programme of invited lectures, oral and poster contributions, organized to promote a review of important issues related to materials development and durability for PEMFC systems. The conference is the sixth in the series initiated by the CARISMA European Coordination Action on Intermediate and High Temperature Membrane Electrode Assemblies.

You are invited to present your recent work covering Membrane, Electrodes, BPPs, Stacks, Modelling relevant to MT/HT PEMFCs or electrolysers operated at middle (>100°C) and high temperatures (>150°C). The full list of conference topics can be found in the webpages:
