Scope of the Forum

Recently, there has been remarkable progress in the wider commercialization of devices and technologies which use low-temperature FUEL CELLS and ELECTROLYZERS. These technologies are strongly linked to HYDROGEN and its PROCESSING – which will be featured at the EFCF 2019. The conference TOPICS(also given below) span the wide range of challenges, from FUNDAMENTAL understanding of the relevant materials as well as of the kinetics and mass/heat Transport processes in operating cells, all the way to their implementation in real-world devices, requiring optimized ENGINEERING DESIGNS.

A Scientific Advisory Committee has been formed to evaluate and structure the technical programme. This panel exercises full scientific independence in all technical matters. All presented papers (oral & poster) will be collated in electronic proceedings available to registered participants. A final version with ISBN will be published in In addition, various other scientific publication possibilities are offered (see Publication Policy). All participants will also receive up-dated programmes of the conference and special events.

The 23rd Forum in series continues the tradition as a well recognized international event for science and industry in these fields. Although a European based event, participants from all continents contribute and attend. The Forum has evolved since 2013 to the largest international event and leading meeting place in Europe dedicated to Hydrogen FC. It is an excellent platform for scientists, engineers and manufactures to present recent technical progress, industrial achievements and inventions. New contacts are established in the unique networking events, which allow a fruitful exchange on technology and business.

Venue: The EFCF 2019 is traditionally held in Lucerne in the heart of Switzerland. The conference centre is a well known location on the picturesque waterfront of Lake Lucerne, easy to reach from the railroad station and within a short distance from many hotels.

The EFCF 2019 consists also of:

The Forum is known for its relaxed atmosphere, good food services and attractive side events. A perfect place to network. All participants will receive exclusive Access to the Proceedings already before the 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 friendship.
