Innovation Booster: Clean Hydrogen

An exciting programme development is the introduction of an Innovation Booster, which each year will focus on a particularly promising area of the energy transition, with the aim to raise awareness, promote innovation and encourage investment.

The current focus of the Innovation Booster is Clean Hydrogen, which is widely recognised as a key enabler of the energy transition, not least as a potential game-changer in our efforts to decarbonise sectors, such as heating, manufacturing and transportation.

However, before we can properly realise its potential, there are plenty of challenges that need addressing, not least scalability and putting the necessary infrastructure in place. Central to those challenges being overcome are blue-sky thinking, innovative ideas and pioneering solutions.

As part of the Innovation Booster, there will be a dedicated programme showcasing novel ideas and innovative technologies from the start-up and entrepreneurial sector, ground-breaking research from universities across Europe, as well as vital pilot projects that involve collaboration between new ventures or academia and the industry establishment.

Start-ups & Young Talent

As part of the Innovation Booster, we are also running several hydrogen-related Innovation Booster Challenges for our students and young professionals participating in the Young Talent Programme.

We are currently seeking Corporate sponsors for these challenges. Get in touch if you're interested!

Finally, as part of this exciting initiative, we are also offering a number of selected start-ups active in the hydrogen space the opportunity to have a presence in the Start-up Community Hub for FREE!
