Meet our Postgraduate Programme in Hydrogen. During our lunch break session on Thursday 21 April, we will inform you about our unique and innovative Hydrogen Specialist training. The only accredited Postgraduate Programme in Hydrogen in Europe trains engineers and lawyers to become the specialists of the future. During this session, we inform you about the content of the programme and the opportunities it offers you. You will also have an opportunity to ask questions.

About Hydrogen

Hydrogen, like solar and wind power, plays an important role in the energy transition. An estimated 50,000 Hydrogen Specialists will be needed by 2030 to implement the hundreds of planned hydrogen projects in Europe. The problem is that there are not enough potential technical and legal specialists in the field of hydrogen. Because the field of hydrogen is relatively unknown, there is a lack of knowledge and experience. This puts the success of hydrogen projects at risk.

Therefore we launched a post-hbo Hydrogen Specialist programme in 2021 in collaboration with Brunel. This makes the students the first accredited Postgraduate Hydrogen Specialists in Europe, closing a knowledge gap in the energy transition.
