Hydrogen Society of Australia presents

Hydrogen Links – Industry Focused Academic Research – HSA Webinar Series


Hydrogen Links, an Industry Focused Academic Research webinar series presented monthly by HSA with Academic and Industry Collaborators

With successful initiatives engaging Researchers, Industry, and Hydrogen Tech. Developers, HSA is striving to bridge the gap between industry and academia further. Launched in May 2023, Hydrogen Links delivers Industry Focused Academic Research presentations online worldwide and in-person at research institutions and laboratories across Australia. This presentation series aims to raise the level of industry awareness and expertise of the cutting-edge hydrogen research taking place in Australia, as well as propel relationships between Industry Players and Academia Members within Australia’s hydrogen ecosystem.

Join us monthly online as prominent Australian academics will be invited to provide an overview of their research area(s) (20-30 mins), its role across the hydrogen ecosystem (ie. hydrogen production, storage, and utilization), followed by an industry focussed Q&A (30 mins). Join in-person to also take part in networking sessions and get in-depth insights into the research development through laboratory and facilities tours.
