Competition In E Amp T Coordination

To assess the market for potential trainees in hydrogen safety a questionnaire was sent to 600 companies and institutions in the Database of Organisations Working in the Hydrogen Industry (). There were 28 respondents and an analysis of their replies indicated that 119 potential trainees would be interested in hydrogen safety education on an annual basis. This implied that a projected market of 5000 companies and institutions would yield 1000 trainees on an annual basis. As a result, it will be necessary to deploy educational/training resources at a number of universities throughout Europe to meet this demand for hydrogen safety education. Further analysis of the replies indicated that the relative interest in the various modes of hydrogen safety education is as follows:

  • postgraduate certificate (PGC): 10.7%
  • postgraduate diploma (PGD): 1.5%
  • master of science (MSc): 29.3%
  • short course (SC): 42.2%
  • continuing professional development (CPD): 16.3%

Currently there is only one higher education course in hydrogen safety engineering in the world, delivered by HySafe-partner UU (see: The topical content of the course complies with the International Curriculum on Hydrogen Safety Engineering ( and teaching materials are developed from keynote lectures presented at the European Summer School on Hydrogen Safety (

Master classes within the International Partnership on Hydrogen Economy (IPHE) is a potentially interesting area for coordination of teaching and training activities in hydrogen safety (

The following educational and training courses are currently being offered by competitors outside the NoE HySafe:

  • Air Products Hydrogen Energy Training and Services
