Strengthen cross border R&I capacities in ADVANCED HYDROGEN TECHNOLOGIES by developing synergies between enterprises, R&D centers and higher education
H₂GreenTECH Final Conference
STRENGTHENING SLOVENIAN-AUSTRIAN CROSS -BORDER COOPERATION FOR THE DEVELOPMENT OF HYDROGEN TECHNOLOGIES
Tuesday, 21. 6. 2022, 10.00 – 13.00
Location: National Institute of Chemistry, Hajdrihova 19, 1000 Ljubljana, Slovenia
Velika predavalnica – 1. nadstropje / Great lecture hall – 1st Floor,
The National Institute of Chemistry, the lead partner of the H₂GreenTECH project, is organizing the conference to mark the conclusion of the project. The project partners are collaborating in the field of hydrogen, which is also considered in the wider European context as part of the solution for the decarbonization of transport and industrial processes, especially in the field of energy storage, supply and increased use of energy from renewable sources.
During the project, the partners from Slovenia and Austria established the Hydrogen Center, a cross-border research, industrial and educational network that will provide information to deepen cooperation and strengthen capacities in the field of hydrogen technologies in the future. In the long term, the center is intended to combine regional strengths of research and development potential for the operation of the hydrogen technology sector and provide companies with access to infrastructure and new development knowledge and technological achievements. The challenges related to hydrogen technologies are universal on many levels and go beyond the national framework, so the cross-sectoral integration of different actors on a cross-border level is important.
At the event, the Hydrogen Center with a development strategy until 2025 and the H₂GreenTECH model of hydrogen use for demonstration and educational purposes with an educational module will be presented. Based on the presented Roadmap on hydrogen technologies in Slovenia and Austria, which was prepared within the project, the panel will also discuss the possibilities for the development of the Hydrogen Valley.
H₂GreenTECH project is co-financed by European Regional Development Fund under the Program Interreg V-A SI-AT.
