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 (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 and via a regularly issued newsletter.

Save the date for ICHS 8!

The 8th International Conference on Hydrogen Safety (ICHS 8) will be held from 24.-26. September 2019 in Adelaide, South Australia, Australia.

More information will be published in due time.

O. k., please do not complain that you have not been warned. The project to have the next ICHS in Australia was clearly announced at the closure of ICHS 7 last year in Hamburg. You missed this? Then make sure that you will not miss the next ICHS as well!

EHEC 2018 opened – HySafe supports safety session

Malaga (Spain), 14. March 2018 – The European Hydrogen Energy Conference 2018 (EHEC 2018) was opened today in the Convention Centre of the capital of the Costa del Sol in Spain. Javier Brey, head of the Spanish Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Association, welcomed some 225 participants, of which some 75 came from outside Europe.

Not only papers were presented, participants could also get a feeling for fuel cell cars on the wheel of either a Toyota Prius or a Hyundai Nexo.

One of the parallel sessions on the first day was about safety. HySafe supported this session. As introductory speaker Olaf Jedicke (Karlsruhe Institute of Technology) gave an overview on HySafe, in particular the ICHS conference and the biannual workshop on research gaps.
