The Coordinating group of the INPG performs its work at the "Ecole Nationale d'Electrochimie et Electrométallurgie de Grenoble" (ENSEEG) and includes the participation of two teams from the LEPMI and LTPCM laboratories of the ENSEEG.

The LTPCM participation with the Coordinator A.R. Yavari together with Ph.D. student F. Ribeiro de Castro and visiting Professor W.J. Botta work on the materials development side in close collaboration with the participating team from the ESRF (Pr A. Kvick and Dr G. Vaughan) as well as postdoctoral fellow Dr G. Huenen.

The LEPMI participation with Directeur de Recherche Christiane Poinsignon together with Dr E . Chainet are experts in electrochemistry and neutron scattering and are expected to closely collaborate with several teams including Dr G. Fragneto in charge of the ILL participation.

The INPG participation is working on nanoparticle additions to MgH2 with or without introduction of fluorides through ball milling. It is particularly interested in the introduction of catalytic ferromagnetic particles and combined diffraction and magnetic measurements during desorption of H using diffraction and magnetisation measurements.

Together, the equipment of the two INPG components added to the facilities of the ESRF and ILL participating teams turn Grenoble into a major support base for this RTN project both from training and research points of view.
