Fuel Cells & Hydrogen Joint Undertaking : 8 appels à projets ouverts jusqu’au 21 avril 2020

Le partenariat public-privé Fuel Cells and Hydrogen (FCH-JU) soutient la R&D dans le domaine des piles à combustible et de l’hydrogène. Dans le cadre de son pilier Transport, 8 appels à projets sont actuellement ouverts jusqu’au 21 avril prochain, dotés d’un total de 41 millions d’euros. Il est donc encore temps de saisir ces belles opportunités et de rejoindre un consortium en se rapprochant d’Hydrogen Europe et des PCN Transport.

Les 8 appels du pilier Transport, dotés d’un total de 41 millions d’euros, visent à
  • Progresser dans le développement et la démonstration de nouvelles applications de transport : autocars, trains et navires 
  • Améliorer les technologies de stockage embarqué 
  • Développer les connaissances sur l’hydrogène liquide  
Les nouveautés de ces appels sont 
  • L’intégration des autocars  
  • Des trains incluant de nouveaux prototypes 
  • La focalisation sur des technologies de stockage avancées
