WP1: MS Modelling and Simulation for SLG Interactions
Model PEMFC components on all relevant length scales through numerical MS simulations. Incorporate all phenomena contributing to performance and longevity including the transport and chemical processes in cathode and membrane into the models
WP2: ML-Inspired Models for PEMFC components
Development of a computational framework for modelling MS processes in PEMFCs, leveraging ML to (i) bridge across scales (ii) analyse relevant structure-property relations and (iii) learn relevant transport coefficients (e.g. diffusion coefficients, membrane permeability, etc) to be integrated into continuum models.
WP3: MS Design of Next-Generation PEMFCs
Suggest PEMFC improvements towards higher energy efficiency and longevity by accounting for features of all
scales. Achieve optimal designs as well as design proposals (roadmap).
Maximise the DCs’ future employability by (a) providing them with a coherent training programme on high-quality scientific and transferable skills, (b) supporting them in their strategic professional development, and (c) integrating meaningful secondment opportunities in the academic and non-academic sector, over and above to their 50%-50% academia-industry enrolment.
WP5: Communication, exploitation and dissemination
Maximise impact of the network for science and society by (a) disseminating research results to the scientific community and external stakeholders, (b) exploiting results in the academic and non-academic sector, and (c) communicating the research themes and findings of BLESSED to different target audiences of the general public.
Oversee the research and training programme, including financial aspects. Communicate with the European Research Agency (ERA). Monitor the timely and on-budget termination of tasks and deliverables
