Scope and Topics

Our society is nowadays experiencing a great transformation, creating new paradigms. Among others, there is a strong feeling of urgency for moving towards carbon-free forms of energy, namely to renewable sources. According to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) there is 50 % chance that we spend the entire carbon budget for keeping the planet below 1.5 ºC of global temperature increase within 10 years. Fuel Cells, Hydrogen and Battery science and technology are part of the great worldwide endeavor to make the energy from renewable sources economically competitive and HYCELTEC 2017 will provide ground to facilitate fruitful exchanges of ideas, results and technology knowledge.

It is our goal for this 6th edition of HYCELTEC to offer an overview of the most advanced studies and recent trends in the topics under discussion, highlighting the multidisciplinary approaches and the emerging areas.

The event aims at bringing together scientists from academic research, applied research and industry, with common and complementary R&D interests. Decision makers from companies and governments are also welcomed. HYCELTEC 2017 intends to stimulate contacts, to highlight recent developments and to create an interdisciplinary forum for discussion, to allow the germination of new ideas, based on the presence of experts from different fields. In particular, young researchers are encouraged to participate and to interact closely with senior scientists. HYCELTEC 2017 wants really to be a milestone on the way to “Integration for Innovation without Fragmentation”, the motto of the EU Framework Programme Horizon 2020.
