H2FC SUPERGEN 2019 Conference: A vision for hydrogen and fuel cells in the UK

REGISTRATION OPEN

30 Jan – 01 Feb 2019,  University of Warwick

Join us at this important symposium with distinguished researchers, industrialists and policy makers presenting their vision for hydrogen and fuel cells globally and be part of the discussions for shaping the future of the sector in the UK.

Bringing together the entire hydrogen and fuel cell research community, inspiring collaboration and driving innovation.

We are pleased to announce that the H2FC SUPERGEN is holding this conference to create a vision for hydrogen and fuel cells in the UK. 

Hydrogen and Fuel Cells are gaining increasing levels of attention from both industry and governments in the UK and globally. This conference will be composed of key-note presentations on technology, policy and industry activities around the world, with key international experts presenting the progress in their respective areas of work and their vision for the sector.

Please note, this conference will follow our 2018 Research Conference to be held at the University of Birmingham, 18-19th Dec 2018, in which students and researchers will have the opportunity to give poster and oral presentations instead. We encourage students and early career researchers to attend both conferences.

This residential conference is highly subsidized by the H2FC Hub, please register early to ensure you have accommodation as part of the registration fee.
