1st Green Hydrogen Workshop


The Copernicus Institute of Sustainable Development is pleased to host the 1st Green Hydrogen Workshop on Friday 3rd February 2023, from 13.00 to 18.00 at the Utrecht University Academy Building.

Green hydrogen will play a key role in achieving global decarbonisation and fulfilling the commitments made for 2050 in the fight against climate change. Given its significance, with this workshop we aim to strengthen and bring together the green hydrogen research community in the Netherlands. There will be time for each institution to briefly present its main research focus on the topic, and in sub-groups we will identify and explore national needs, challenges and ways forward. 

The afternoon will be followed by refreshments and snacks, with the opportunity to get to know each other informally.
