HySafe, regularly organizes research priorities workshops related to hydrogen safety. The reports on these workshops, exercises respectively, are provided for download at the end of the page.
The purpose of this internationally open activity is to
- steadily update the State-of-the-Art with respect to hydrogen safety knowledge and to
- prioritize the research activities to address corresponding gaps in the short and medium term.
Historically the workshop is rooted in a Phenomena Identification and Ranking Table (PIRT) exercise, first conducted in 2004 by the Network of Excellence NoE HySafe, which was the precursor of the International Association HySafe.
As all activities of the NoE, the prioritization activity also was designed to overcome the fragmentation in hydrogen safety research, integrate different expert views and to coordinate related work on an international level. In 2008, close to the end of the NoE, the PIRT was updated.
In 2010 after the NoE phase the EC JRC in Petten took over initiative and organized a research priorities workshop. However, this workshop focused on the CFD modeling and development. The HySafe partners realized the value and organized the first workshop with an extended scope on more broad-reaching general hydrogen safety knowledge in 2012 in Berlin. Results have been published at the International Conference on Hydrogen Safety ICHS2013 in Brussels. The status was updated by the subsequent workshops, 2014 supported by the US DoE in Washington DC and 2016 supported by the JRC in Petten, The Netherlands.
The following issue of the workshop was organised this year on September 2018 at the premises of HSL, Buxton UK.
