IDEAL Cell: Partner 3 CNR

National Research Council
CNR, Italy
Partner 3
WP4 Coordinator

Partner CNR is a joint research group among CNR-IENI (Institute for Energetics and Interphases, Genova Department), two Departments of the University of Genova (Dept. of Process and Chemical Engineering – DICheP and Dept. of Chemistry and Industrial Chemistry – DCCI) and the Department of Chemical Engineering (DIC) of the University of Pisa. During the last 8 years partner CNR has been developing research work in the field of SOFC, particularly on synthesis and sintering of nano powders for the fabrication of ionic ceramic conductors (CNR-IENI), electrocatalytic activity of the electrodes (anodes and cathodes) for high temperature fuel cells (DICheP-UNIGE), interconnects alloys for IT and LT-SOFC (DCCI­UNIGE), modelling of electrochemical reactions, mass and charge transport phenomena in composite materials and architectures (DIC-UNIPI in collaboration with DICheP-UNIGE).

The partner’s staff accounts for 6 scientists, 3 PhD students and 2 technitians. It is involved in a national research project on Fuel Cells (FISR), has been partner in two European projects (FP5­SFTR, FP5-POEMES coordinated by Partner 5) and has close cooperation with European industry and research laboratories operating in the field of fuel cells.
