We work to create a Hydrogen Skills Agenda
Hydrogen Europe Research recognises the education of students and the upskilling & reskilling of the workforce as essential considerations for the development of a future hydrogen economy. Considering the fast-paced deployment of the hydrogen ecosystem, a trained workforce will be needed to deliver on the European hydrogen strategy objectives, and the strategies of member states and regions. Together Hydrogen Europe Research and Hydrogen Europe set up a Working Group to discuss skills needs in the hydrogen sector and how to address them. Different stakeholders are gathered such as universities, research centres, industry players, regions and national associations.
The Working Group is steered by two co-chairs, one representing industry and one research. The co-chair is elected for a two-years mandate. The current co-chair elected in March 2022 is Professor Steinberger-Wilckens from the University of Birmingham.
We participate in the Fuel Cells and Hydrogen Observatory
Hydrogen Europe Research partners in the Fuel Cells and Hydrogen Observatory (FCHO). The FCHO provides data (statistics, facts and analysis) and up to date information about the entire hydrogen sector. The FCHO focuses on technology and market statistics, socio-economic indicators, policy and regulation, and financial support.
This go-to resource also has a dedicated section on Education and Trainings which has been designed for students, teachers, researchers and, more broadly, individuals interested in learning about fuel cells and hydrogen. It provides an overview of trainings available in the field of fuel cells and hydrogen as well as educational materials that may be of interest to these groups.
