The principle landing and Rotunda area area enriched with marble work similar to the main entrance. A major feature is the mural by Belfast Artist John Luke, depicting the industry and the foundation of the City.

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 its 2016 Researcher Conference from midday 12th Dec – midday 14th Dec 2016 at the University of Ulster’s Jordanstown campus, Belfast. In-line with the ethos of H2FC SUPERGEN, this conference endeavors to bring together the entire hydrogen and fuel cell research community in the UK and beyond.

The conference will host presentations and posters from researchers, with participation of key academics, industrialists and government/policy advisors working across the field of hydrogen and fuel cells. The conference will provide an excellent chance to network within the community.


We highly encourage PhD students, researchers, academics, industrialists to submit half to one page abstracts for the conference detailing their research and giving an overview of the results they wish to present to Dr Zeynep Kurban at h2fcsupergen.conf@imperial.ac.uk by Friday 7th October 2016. Please indicate your preference for an oral or poster presentation and which theme your research falls under (see below for the list of themes). Due to popular interest last year we will again have a 3-minute-thesis (3MT) competition. We encourage PhD students who are not giving an oral presentation to join the 3MT completion and present a summary of their research in a three minute presentation. In your abstract submission please also indicate if you wish to take part in the 3MT competition. There will be prizes for best poster and 3MT presentation.


The topics will focus on research developments on hydrogen, fuel cells and their applications, with focus on, but not exclusivity to, the themes below:

Theme 1: Hydrogen Production
Theme 2: Hydrogen Storage
Theme 3: Fuel Cells
Theme 4: Hydrogen/Fuel Cell Systems and Applications
