Abstract submission is open for NZHS-1, and closes on Friday 2 December at noon (NZ time).
NZHS-1 is the first of this new, annual, research-focussed hydrogen symposium series. We're thrilled that it is being supported by 'team NZ', including amongst others, the New Zealand Hydrogen Council, MacDiarmid Institute, Otago Energy Research Centre and many Universities and CRIs.
Furthermore, we acknowledge the key role that the recent award of four German-New Zealand Green Hydrogen grants, supported by both the German BMBF and by MBIE in New Zealand, as well as the award of other large team hydrogen research grants in NZ by MBIE, has had in leading to 'team NZ' establishing this new annual research-focussed H2 symposium series.
Applications are being accepted for travel grants for students towards attending conferences in energy related research.
