2. Interregional Congress H₂GreenTECH – Follow up Journal

Within the INTERREG research project HGreenTECH, the consortium is building a network of companies, research institutes and others interested in the future of H₂ technology in Slovenia and Austria. The research project will furthermore strengthen cooperation between institutions specializing in H₂ and spread knowledge about ongoing research across the project partners and others. To accomplish dissemination, the partners organized the second interregional congress on the 25th of November, 2021.

Compared to the first interregional congress in June 2021, which focused on strengthening relations between Austria and Slovenia, the 2nd interregional congress centered around researchers giving them an opportunity to discuss and elaborate on diverse topics. All project partners had a slot of 30 minutes giving them the opportunity to decide which topic to present.

The congress gave researchers, master’s students, and PhD students a chance to present research results, ongoing projects, or topics on H₂ technologies. To facilitate the interaction among participants, the congress employs a highly interactive presentation format called ConversTation. A ConversTation provides time for focused feedback and valuable discussions. Hence, it consists of two dedicated slots: A first timeslot includes a classical presentation providing some interesting insights on research; a second timeslot gives a chance to discuss details within a virtual conversation and open-end coffee table.

In the following pages, you will find details for each contribution given by the individual institutes that participated and presented at the congress. We would like to take this opportunity to warmly thank the presenters and give a big compliment for their presentations!
