The second edition of the European Hydrogen Week, co-organized by the European Commission, Hydrogen Europe and the Clean Hydrogen Partnership, took place from the 20th to the 24th of November in Brussels.
November 29, 2023
For its second edition, the program focused attention on the need for both urgency and pragmatism in creating the regulatory framework, as well as the unique challenges different sectors face to de-carbonize and how hydrogen can help in this process. During five days, visitors attended several high-level policy conferences and B2B forum talks and explored the exhibition space, where stands from multinational energy and transport companies to innovative start-ups showcased their products and demos and organized networking sessions.
The LESGO project, coordinated by ICFO and led by Prof. Jordi Martorell, had a highlighted stand in one of this year’s novelties, a dedicated space for European-funded actions. The European Project Pavilion hosted ten diverse actions across several European countries, from fully-funded research projects to co-funded actions on technology development and deployment. The stand provided researchers with a platform to engage with a wide spectrum of and to explain LESGO’s goals and advancements. Moreover, their presence allowed for extensive networking, fostering connections with industry leaders, policymakers, fellow researchers, and potential collaborators. Luis Guillermo Gerling, Knowledge and Technology Transfer officer at ICFO, gave a talk presenting the solutions that the LESGO project proposes to the challenge of hydrogen storage.
