At UL, 11 laboratories and more than 40 researchers and about 20 PhD students lead activities on hydrogen production, compression and usage from basic science on catalysts and innovative architecture of PEM-FC to issues related to human and social sciences (economics, ergonomics, social psychology, education science). Recently UL gets the support of the French Government through the Excellence Initiative programme (I-SITE Lorraine Université d’Excellence), and is member of Hydrogen Europe Research, KIC InnoEnergy, KIC Raw Materials and of the EUA.

10 fully-monitored test benches for low-power PEM-FC or PEM-WEC (mainly mono-cell but also FC stack up to 2kW) able to work 24/7, a test bench for H2 compression up to 700 bar (by electrochemical and cryo-compression) and a spray coating machine to produce electrodes. RMN spectroscopy is also used to monitor membrane behaviour in different conditions
