HIAD 2.0 – free access to the renewed hydrogen incident and accident database

With almost 300 hydrogen events –  accidents, incidents and near misses –  collected in a database, HIAD was one of the main results of the NoE HySafe (2004-2009) and still represents one of the largest collections for hydrogen specific data.

With support of the FCH 2 JU JRC has updated the database, gave it new user interfaces and major release number (2.) and made it opened it for free access.

Call for Abstract for ICHS2019 issued

All interested contributors to the unique hydrogen safety event, the International Conference for Hydrogen Safety ICHS, which will be organised next year 24 to 26 September in Adelaide, Australia, are invited to submit a short abstract via www.ichs2019.com (menu item “ABSTRACT SUBMISSION”).

The deadline for submitting an abstract is 31 of December 2018. So enough time to become active 😉


Slow but steady wins the race! Research priorities published!

The report of the last Research Priorities Workshop, organised commonly by JRC, US DOE and HySafe in fall 2016 in Petten, The Netherlands, has been finalised and published via the JRC print services. After a preliminary presentation by Jay Keller at the ICHS2017 in Hamburg, the full document provides a detailed reference for prioritised research topics in the field of hydrogen safety.

The electronic version is also available for download directly here: Report_RPW 2016 2018-03-20 final

BTW, if you want to contribute to the next version of this document, reserve third week in September. The 2018 version of the workshop will be organised in Buxton, UK in the premises of HSL.


First Meeting of European Hydrogen Safety Panel

On 12th of March the first time the European Hydrogen Safety Panel EHSP met for designing the first year actions in Brussels. The EHSP will develop a safety guidance document for FCH 2 JU funded projects, will analyse data collected in the European databases and will start further support actions at program and project level.

Communication will take place via the respective webpage at the FCH 2 JU site http://www.fch.europa.eu/page/european-hydrogen-safety-panel and via a regularly issued newsletter.

PhD positions in the Hydrogen Safety topic available at University Ulster

The deadline for applications for PhD studies at Ulster University in the area of hydrogen safety is 19th of February 2018.

Three topics of doctoral studies in hydrogen safety are published at Ulster University website:

The studies are funded via Vice-Chancellor Research Award (PhD fellowship is “not less than 14,553” per annum not subject to tax, no fee). The funding is competitive by submission of a research proposal within a topic followed by a phone interview in due course. You are welcome to contact supervisors to discuss your proposal, or just get in contact with Prof. Molkov (v.molkov@ulster.ac.uk).
