Scope of the Forum

6th European PEFC & Electrolyser Forum will be a highlight of the year for those involved with HYDROGEN-, DIRECT ALCOHOL-  and  MICROBIAL FUEL CELLS as well as ELECTROLYSERS and linked HYDROGEN PROCESSING & PURIFICATION & STORAGE. The Focus (see below) lies on science & engineering, materials & manufacturing, components & systems, design, testing & integration, applications, operation & combinations, and markets issues. The forum is exchange platform and bridge from Materials & Components to Applications. It provides a comprehensive State-of-the-Art, access to practical Inventions and new competitive Solutions. Therefore it brings together academia, industry (component manufacturers, OEMs, suppliers,...), decision makers and investors. In this major field of hydrogen fuel cells the forum evolved into the leading European meeting place.

The Motto is:  Fuel Cells & Reversible Technologies
                          From Materials & Components to Applications 
                          Practical Inventions & Competitive Solutions.

Venue place: The EFCF 2017 is traditionally held in Lucerne in the heart of Switzerland. The conference centre is a well known location on the picturesque waterfront of the Lake Lucerne, easy to reach from the railroad station and within a short distance from many hotels.

The 6th EUROPEAN PEFC & ELECTROLYSER FORUM consists among others of:
Fuel Cell and Hydrogen TUTORIAL on Tuesday, 4 July,
CONFERENCE with two parallel lecture series 
     from Wednesday, 5 July to Friday, 7 July and
EXHIBITION for suppliers and fuel cell stakeholders 
     open from Tuesday 16:00 h to Friday 12:00 h.
Onsite registration starts on Tuesday, 16:00 h followed by the Welcome Reception from 18:00 to 19:00 h.
The Forum is known for its relaxed atmosphere, good food services and attractive side events. A perfect place to network. All participants will receive exclusively the Access to the Proceedings already before conference. Social gatherings like the "Swiss Surprise", or the "Dinner on the Lake" on board beautifully restored paddle wheel steamers create excellent opportunities for science, business and friendliness.
