Based on a short review of current state-of-the-art materials of SOFC active components, the major challenges still requiring basic research are pointed out. With the aid of literature research, SWOT analyses for both main cell designs, tubular and planar, are constructed to give an immediate insight of the complex situation of SOFC research. The results of this work are interpreted with the research strategy of the European Hydrogen & Fuel Cell Technology Platform in order to incorporate the conclusions into a wider context. This study provides a clear-cut starting point for new players in the field of SOFC research, as well as tangible material for decision makers to formulate their guidelines for future strategies. ©The Electrochemical Society.
