New European partnership to support energy transition, hydrogen in focus

Hydrogen Europe, Hydrogen Europe Research, and EURAMET (the European Association of National Metrology Institutes) have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to foster cooperation for the mutual benefit of the associations, in support of hydrogen research and technology requiring metrological knowledge and information.

More specifically, according to the partners, the forms of cooperation include:

  • Exchange of knowledge about capabilities and needs in the field of metrology for hydrogen.
  • Hydrogen Europe and Hydrogen Europe Research will become members of the European Metrology Networks stakeholder council.
  • Exchange of information on research in the field of hydrogen performed under the European Partnership on Metrology (EPM) and the Clean Hydrogen Joint Undertaking (CHJU) and the creation of synergies that enhance the efficiency and impact of both research programmes under the partnerships.
  • Joint exchange of information on further funded research programmes dealing with energy gases, energy transition and/or climate topics.

Jorgo Chatimarkakis, CEO of Hydrogen Europe, said: “Today, we are cementing a collaboration that has already started for several years and we are very glad to strengthen it even more with this MoU between HE, HER, and Euramet. These cooperations are fundamental and showcase EU R&I synergies in action.”
