Fuel cells and hydrogen top rank highest in innovation investment
Automotive Design
It is one of five proposed research and innovation partnerships under Horizon 2020 and builds upon the success of the first generation of the program from 2008-2013. Some 150 projects and over 430 industry and research organizations have won support under the annual, competitive calls for proposals issued by the current program. The proposal for a council regulation on the "Fuel Cells and Hydrogen 2 Joint Undertaking" creates the basis for a renewed public-private partnership aimed at expanding the use of clean and efficient technologies in transport, industry and energy.
