Presentations of the FCH JU 2010 Stakeholders General Assembly available

November 9th and 10th the yearly Stakeholder General Assembly took place in Brussels. This year the meeting took place in an office building a little bit out of the EC district. It was well attended, even by non-European players.

Not really surprising was, that only one presentation (this of Mac Steen JRC) was dedicated to the cross-cutting items, which were grouped with early market. The meeting was used by other related groups, like IPHE, research grouping, and industry grouping for combined meetings. 

On you find all presentations. I could not find minutes which reflected comments made by Joaquin Martin-Bermejo of the EC. The comments were quite interesting as they somehow were balanced regarding pros and cons of the JU results so far.

BMW continues to support hydrogen energy!

Last Dcember there had been rumours BMW would stop supporting hydrogen based on a misunderstanding of an interview with the research director.

BMW immediatly corrected this and declared that there is no stop in supporting hydrogen as a vehicle fuel. Development of associated technologies is ongoing and the related partnerships are maintained.
