The overall goal of the Clean Hydrogen JU is to support research and innovation (R&I) activities in the EU, in the field of clean hydrogen solutions and technologies, under EU’s new funding programme for research and innovation, Horizon Europe and in synergy with other EU initiatives and programmes.

The Clean Hydrogen JU will contribute to the European climate neutrality goal by producing noticeable, quantifiable results towards the development and scaling up of hydrogen applications. This will help develop a number of hydrogen technologies, which are currently either not competitive or have a low technology readiness level, but are expected to contribute to the 2030 energy and climate targets and most importantly make possible climate neutrality by 2050.

The Clean Hydrogen JU is the continuation of the successful Fuel Cell and Hydrogen Joint Undertakings (FCH JU and FCH 2 JU), under FP7 and Horizon 2020 (H2020) respectively.

Previous Multi-Annual Work Plans (MAWP)

The FCH 2 JU Multi-Annual Work Plan (MAWP) was set out for years 2014-2020, under the Horizon 2020 Programme for Research and Innovation. It outlines the scope and the objectives of the research, technological development and demonstration activities for the time frame 2014-2020.
