Green Hydrogen Working Groups

symbolic image connections

Parallel to the promotion of mobility, a central element of the ERA Green Hydrogen Fellowship programme is the accompaniment of fellows through the creation of working groups intended to promote the discussion on relevant topics, the initiation of research cooperation, and the implementation of the hydrogen agenda. The focus is on all segments of the hydrogen value chain, from production to transport and infrastructures, market stimulation, and cross-cutting issues relevant to the hydrogen ecosystem.

The working groups are formed by the scholars of the ERA - Green Hydrogen Fellowship programme, and representatives from academia, industry, and public administrators – thus building an interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary green hydrogen community.

The objective is not to address the topic in an overarching and general way, but to start from the projects and the activities of the individual members with the objective to support each other and to eliminate any stumbling blocks.

    The Working Groups are:

    • an international forum to disseminate research results, discuss academic issues and engage with participants that would not normally meet;
    • a place for academics and experts to connect with young researchers interested in pursuing a career in the green hydrogen economy, thus identifying options for internships and professional development;
    • a tool for collaboration and discovery of new applications and technological solutions;
    • a place for real-time conversations around research papers, conference talks and wider academic issues;
    • a connection to the scientific world in the European Research Area – including access to conferences and training seminars on the topic of green hydrogen;.
    • a space where different stakeholders (industry, research, academia, and civil servants) come together to make the green hydrogen economy in Germany and the EU a reality.
