HyDEX is pleased to announce that it will be running a Hydrogen School from the 8th to 12th of January 2024.

Based at the Loughborough University in the centre of the UK, the winter Hydrogen School consists of a one week long programme of lectures from the HyDEX partner university academics, and site visits to world leading hydrogen research and demonstration facilities across the university partnership.

The Hydrogen School is for anyone with an interest in learning more about hydrogen and the latest hydrogen technologies and applications.

This is an excellent opportunity to gain an insight into current innovations within the hydrogen value chain and understand how the HyDEX programme is working to accelerate low carbon hydrogen solutions as part of the transition to net zero.

The full programme for the winter Hydrogen School is below, and to register for a place, please visit the registrations page. If you have any questions, please email HyDEX Skills Officer, Sarah Gomes.
