Funding and Links

Our Funding Activities

A combined funding of £18M has been awarded to 36 research across 21 UK Universities either by the Hub or by EPSRC challenge calls through the Hub. The Hub funds four main strands of activity.

  • The first is our core research programme (40% of budget), in which we address key topics that provide the foundations for the science of hydrogen and fuel cells.
  • The second is our support for the dedicated education and training (3% of budget) of PhD students allocated to the Hub by partner universities.
  • The third is our flexible funding research programme (41% of budget), open to the whole UK academic community, which identifies and addresses additional research challenges.
  • The fourth is our networking activity (16% of budget), reaching across the whole hydrogen and fuel cells sector and bringing people together under the banner of the Hub.

While the H2FCSUPERGEN Hub represents some of the leading hydrogen research groups in the United Kingdom, there are many other organisations working in the field. For other possible funding opportunities, as well as news and opportunities, explore the links below.
