Funded by the Scottish Government, four awardees from three Scottish Higher Education Institutes have been collectively awarded over £97K to begin collaborative projects with colleagues from German Institutes through the RSE’s Scotland-Germany Hydrogen Research Scheme.

This new Scheme seeks to foster research- and practice-based partnerships between Scotland and Germany to develop hydrogen-related research which can inform Scottish Government policy objectives and lead the way towards a decarbonised future.

Applications were welcomed for projects that focused on: optimising the production of green hydrogen; hydrogen storage; and hydrogen distribution/transport.

As well as supporting Scotland’s ambitious Hydrogen Action Plan, the RSE Scotland-Germany Hydrogen Research Scheme supports other areas of Scottish Government policy including:

  • Developing strong partnerships with Germany to pursue net-zero transition objectives;
  • Strengthening research collaborations with EU partners post-Brexit;
  • Underpinning and future-proofing Scottish-German partnerships in this area through joint policy, investment and trade opportunities;
  • Supporting the sustainability objectives within the Scottish Governement post-Covid-19 economic strategy
