Together with EU policy-makers, industry and the research community we will discuss the role of green hydrogen as a key enabler in achieving Europe’s clean energy transition.

On the second day of the Forum, companies will have the opportunity to present their most innovative hydrogen projects and pitch them to a wide audience, as well as participate in matchmaking activities to meet project partners from all over Europe!
