Center for Sustainable Hydrogen Systems Launches With a Kick-Off Workshop
Bundling research in the Aachen region around the topic of hydrogen.
Hydrogen offers us the opportunity to replace fossil fuels with sustainable and renewable equivalents, and it is also very versatile in its applications. Numerous institutes at RWTH Aachen University have been researching hydrogen for years. Several building blocks for this purpose have already been established in the region. With the Center for Sustainable Hydrogen Systems, the activities are now to be bundled. RWTH Professor Stefan Pischinger, chair and senior scientist at the Center for Mobile Propulsion will act as spokesperson.
More than 50 professors from RWTH and Forschungszentrum Jülich have now met for a kick-off workshop. They presented their research and development projects and jointly adopted the vision of working towards a unified hydrogen research infrastructure. Further members for the center are also to be acquired.
With the foundation of the center, RWTH and Forschungszentrum Jülich have reached the next milestone on their way to becoming a leading hydrogen region, building on the success they had in the Clusters4Future ideas competition of the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) with their Hydrogen Cluster of the Future proposal. This particular BMBF competition also focused on regional innovation networks that combine the strengths of everyone involved.
