About Hydrogen Europe Research
Hydrogen Europe Research is an international, non–profit association composed of 120 Universities and Research & Technology Organisations (RTO) from 27 countries all over Europe and beyond. Our members are active within the European hydrogen and fuel cell sector.
We are a dynamic organisation in great expansion: in 13 years our membership basis has doubled, and so did our geographic coverage. We welcome new members interested in joining the European research and innovation ecosystem focusing on hydrogen and fuel cell technologies and participating in the underlying discussions surrounding the development of our sector.
We believe that ambitious research is needed all along the hydrogen value chain and all Technological Readiness Levels (TRL).
Our vision is to enable mature and developing hydrogen technologies to live up to their potential in order to achieve a sustainable and decarbonised fully-integrated energy system.
Supporting the excellence of European research on hydrogen and fuel cells
Promoting the development of research & technology infrastructures to scale up and speed up innovation
Ensuring sustainable development standards for a clean hydrogen ecosystem
Developing education and trainings to provide a skilled workforce for the European hydrogen economy
The General Assembly is the highest organ of the association. It determines the general policy of the association. General Assembly meetings are held at least twice a year with all members.
The Executive Board is composed of 10 elected members: the President, the Vice-President and Treasurer, the Chair for External Affairs and the 7 Technical Committee (TC) leaders following the activities of each TC in the Clean Hydrogen Partnership. They are elected for a two-years mandate. The last elections took place in May 2022. The Board meets monthly to discuss the activities of the association.
The Board supervises a Secretariat composed of three full-time employees in charge of managing the day-to-day business of the association.
