CENTRE NATIONAL DE LA RECHERCHE SCIENTIFIQUE
The French National Centre for Scientific Research (CNRS) is among the world’s leading research institutions. Its scientists explore the living world, matter, the Universe, and the functioning of human societies in order to meet the major challenges of today and tomorrow. The University of Montpellier is one of the oldest existing European universities, dating from the medieval Faculty of Medicine of Montpellier (1220). Its values: success based on merit and equal opportunity. Chemistry is one of five pillars of excellence of the University.
Internationally recognised for the excellence of its scientific research, ICGM, joint research unit of CNRS with Montpellier University has, over the past 30 years, contributed leading research on fuel cells and electrolyser materials and their implementation.
We participate in BRAVA because we can contribute through our background in fuel cell membranes development, characterisation, understanding of degradation phenomena, and fuel cell testing, and develop collaborations with key partners in the aviation sector.
What in BRAVA?
CNRS and University of Montpellier are involved in the development and characterisation of robust and durable nanofibre reinforced fuel cell membranes using Solvay polymers and Aquivion perfluorosulfonic acid ionomer, for use in the membrane electrode assemblies to be developed by Aerostack.
“Through BRAVA we pursue scientific excellence to contribute to technology advances for clean hydrogen air transport.“
