The present invention relates to a composite for an electrode, a composite precursor, a method of manufacturing a composite, and the composite obtained by said method. The invention further relates to an electrode comprising the composite, as well as a solid state electrochemical cell comprising the composite. The invention also relates to the use of the composite as a fuel electrode, solid oxide fuel cell, and/or solid oxide electrolyser. The invention discloses a composite for an electrode, comprising a three-dimensional network of dispersed metal particles, stabilised zirconia particles and pores, wherein the size of the pores is smaller than the size of the metal particles, wherein the size of the metal particles is essentially equal to or smaller than the size of the stabilised zirconia particles, wherein the porosity is below 33, 30, or 29 vol%, more preferably below 26 or 24 vol%, and most preferably below 23, 22, 21, 18, 15, or 13 vol%, and/or wherein the pores are essentially exclusively generated from the volume created by reducing a corresponding metal oxide to the metal particles.
