Green hydrogen is one of the key factors to achieve the climate neutrality worldwide. Therefore, the DAAD established the funding program “ERA Fellowships – Green Hydrogen” as our contribution to the energy transition and decarbonization in Europe and beyond. With this program, we want to support early career researchers and young professionals to study, do research or internship in Germany and our GH2 partner countries. Our GH2 fellows will be integrated into a large international network with DAAD alumni and other experts from academia, industry, and civil society.

Do you share your expertise with other peers? Or are you looking for international GH2 talents? Become part of our Green Hydrogen Community via this short survey (5 minutes).
