Scientific & Technological Frontiers in Green Hydrogen

Joint European Disruptive Initiative | Dr. Enass Abo-Ahmed, Pierre-Etienne Franc, Dr. Daniel Teichmann, André Loesekrug-Pietri

One of the next GrandChallenge launched by the Joint European Disruptive Initiative, the European Darpa, will cover several fields of Green Hydrogen, hydrogen produced without carbon emission.

Join the discussion with great experts in this field to discover which scientific and technological frontiers we need to overcome for Hydrogen to become a major element of our path to carbon neutrality!
