Following the great interest in the first two RHIA & NAG interactive workshops on the topic of hydrogen & aviation, we would like to invite you for the third (online) event on January 20th, 2022 from 13:00 – 15:00. RHIA & NAG will organize an interactive program with speakers about financial instruments & from consortia (to be formed) on the theme of hydrogen.
Set-up of the meeting
The meeting is a first exploration in the run-up to a so-called SME Challenge Hydrogen (February 10th and March 10th)
- What financial instruments are there for hydrogen initiatives?
- Which existing consortia would like to make use of this?
- Which consortia could/should we still form?
The aim of this event is to include SMEs, in particular to identify their potential role in the transition of the market to aircraft with hydrogen-based propulsion and to help to focus their R&D and business development activities on this and to identify cooperation opportunities, networking, forming consortia and discover ideas for follow-up sessions.
SMEs active in the aviation industry & airport development, and High Tech SMEs outside the traditional aviation sector, such as the automotive, maritime and cryogenic technology sector with knowledge of hydrogen systems or associated systems and processes.
