INSPIRE
is a three-year research and development project supported by a grant of €7.0 million from Europe’s Fuel Cells and Hydrogen Joint Undertaking (FCH JU), under Grant Agreement Number 700127, a unique public-private partnership supporting research, technological development and demonstration in the fuel cell and hydrogen energy sectors in Europe.  This industry-led project has an overall aim of bringing together the most advanced critical PEMFC stack components existing today and integrating these into a fuel cell that is capable of delivering on the most challenging of the performance, durability and cost targets required for large-scale automotive fuel cell commercialisation.

The components have already been consistently demonstrated in the laboratory and are being further developed, scaled and integrated into an advanced generation automotive fuel cell stack to demonstrate the application of the technology in an industrially-relevant environment. 
Consortium members include fuel cell component suppliers, academic institutions and car manufacturer BMW Group.
