Program at a glance:
During the first two days, speakers from politics and academia will discuss the techno-economic, regulatory and (geo)political challenges associated with the development of hydrogen economy in Europe and their interplay with the European external energy policy. Questions such as what needs to be done for the EU to ensure competitiveness of its hydrogen industries, what could be the geopolitical consequences of large import of hydrogen, or what regulatory framework for hydrogen development would align the best with the expected development of EU’s internal energy market will be in focus. The third day of the School will feature a poster session at which the participants will share their research ideas, progress reports or summarize findings of already completed projects.
Who can participate:
The School targets primarily early career researchers but welcomes also experienced analysts and practitioners interested in EU’s external energy policy, energy transition and hydrogen policy.
