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

The Hydrogen Society of Australia (HSA) has grown considerably over the past year, with successful initiatives which have engaged junior researchers, such as our poster competition on the Australian Hydrogen Day (2022 10 08).  This year, we wish to further bridge the gap between industry and academia, launching the Academics webinar series, on a monthly basis from May onwards. The objective of this initiative is both to raise the level of industry awareness and expertise, and deepen the relationships between industry and academia within the HSA.

Prominent Australian academics will be invited to provide a short overview of their research areas (20-30 mins), across the hydrogen ecosystem (ie. hydrogen production, storage, and utilization), followed by an industry focussed Q&A (30 mins).

The series is developing over time, with the following topics confirmed:
