The Stakeholders’ Workshop is a two-day public event that will bring together tunnel authorities, tunnel managers and designers, tunnel operators and safety officers, etc., but also hydrogen-powered vehicles and hydrogen delivery transport developers and manufacturers.
The aim of the Workshop is to inform prospective users about the mid- and long-term outcomes of the HyTunnel-CS project and to find a common ground for the future exploitation of the results. The Workshop wants facilitate open discussion on the impact, achievements and strategic direction of the HyTunnel-CS project.
Attendance of the workshop in person and by teleconferencing is planned depending on the situation with coronavirus.
From 4th to 5th May 2020, the Sapienza University of Rome will host a stakeholders’ workshop of the HyTunnel-CS project, an initiative led by the University of Ulster that focuses on pre-normative research for safety of hydrogen-driven vehicles and transport through tunnels and similar confined spaces.
This stakeholders’ workshop will be a public event that will bring together tunnel authorities, tunnels managers and designers, tunnel operators and safety officers, as well as hydrogen-powered vehicles and hydrogen delivery developers and manufacturers.
The aim of the workshop is to inform about the mid and long-term results of the HyTunnel-CS project in order to find a common ground for the future exploitation of results. The workshop wants to facilitate open discussion on the impact, achievements and strategic direction of the HyTunnel-CS project.
This project has received funding from the Fuel Cells and Hydrogen 2 Joint Undertaking (JU) under grant agreement No 826193. Registration is therefore free, but limited to 70 participants.
The stakeholders’ workshop will be held on 4th and 5th May 2020. Due to the global Coronavirus outbreak, it will be broadcasted via web and attendants can participate online.
The HyTunnel-CS project
HyTunnel-CS is a 36-month cooperation project led by the University of Ulster (United Kingdom) and with participation of the Karlsruher Institut fuer Technologie (Germany), the National Center of Scientific Research “Demokritos” (Greece), Universitetet i Sorost-Norge (Norway), Health and Safety Executive (United Kingdon), Danmarks Tekniske Univesitet (Denmark), the Fundación para el Desarrollo de las Nuevas Tecnologías del Hidrógeno en Aragón (Spain), the International Fire Academy (Switzerland), Università degli Studi di Roma La Sapienza (Italy), Stichting Nederlands Normalisatie – Institut (Netherlands), Service Public Fédéral Intérieur (France), Commissariat à l’Énergie Atomique et aux Énergies Alternatives (France) and the Pro-Science Gesellschaft für Wissenschaftliche und Technische Dienstleistungen MBCH (Germany).
With a budget of 2.5 million euros, this project whats to facilitate that hydrogen vehicles enter underground traffic systems at risk below of the same as for fossil fuel transport.
