1 Introduction

Integration of Experimental Facilities (IEF) is one of the integrating activities within the network HySafe aiming at the integration of experience and knowledge on hydrogen safety in Europe as well as at the integration and harmonisation of the fragmented research base. The creation of a set of specialised research facilities is the main goal of IEF in order to enable the network for jointly define, rank and perform test series. Research facilities are needed for investigation of relevant phenomena, for testing devices and concepts as well as for validation of numerical models.

The main task of WP2 during the first 18 months of the network is to prepare the basis for future integration of the experimental possibilities of the partners. As a first step, the partners have prepared detailed descriptions of the facilities available for carrying out specific tests and experiments related to the thematic structure of the network.
