• Dr. Cuevas @ the 4th Energy Future Conference

    HyCARE researcher Fermin Cuevas has participated as academic speakers to the 4th Energy Future Conference organized by the Australian UNSW Energy Institute. The conference brought together scientists, engineers, academia, investors, industry, and policymakers to discuss the Emerging technologies across hydrogen value chain from hydrogen production and conversion, storage, distribution, safety and standards, applications, as well as unseen challenges associated with establishing the Hydrogen economy including environmental issues, water supply as well as social acceptance.

    During the Conference, Cuevas presented his work related to the alloy design, tuning to thermodynamic operation conditions, activation and kinetic issues, as well as to cycling stability, resistance to impurities and limited use of raw critical materials.

    Please, find here the abstract of Dr. Cueva’s speach.

  • CNRS Hydrogen Research Federation: Launch Event

    Our partner CNRS is glad to launch the French Hydrogen Research Federation. The launch event will take place online on 9th of March 2021, from 9 am to 12 am.

    The FRH2 federation brings together more than 270 scientists who are experts in the hydrogen field and who work in cutting-edge CNRS laboratories with their academic and industrial partners. It positions the CNRS as an essential link in R&D to promote innovative multidisciplinary projects, the main objectives of which are to remove scientific barriers and propose technological breakthroughs. 

    The inaugural event of FRH2 is an opportunity to present to all the players in the sector, the teams and the research activities carried out in the large “energy” landscape of the CNRS.

  • HyCARE’s 5th Project Meeting Online

    On Thursday 21, January 2021, the HyCARE’s Project Meeting took place online. It has been an important meeting to define the next steps for starting the construction of the HyCARE’s full prototype. Although the COVID-pandemic has slowed down some activities, the project is proceeding well thanks to the great management of UniTo and the excellent collaboration among partners.

    2021 will be a key year for HyCARE. Keep following us!

  • HyCARE @ SHARPER 2020

    SHARPER stands for “SHAring Researchers’ Passions for Evidences and Resilience” . SHARPER is one of the 7 projects financed by the European Commission for organizing in Italy the Night of the Researchers in 2020.

    SHARPER is taking place on the 27th of Novembre 2020 in the cities of Ancona, Cagliari, Camerino, Catania, L’Aquila, Macerata, Nuoro, Palermo, Pavia, Perugia, Terni, Torino e Trieste to share with citizens the passion, the challenges and the joy of being a researcher in Europe .

    HyCARE is participating to the edition in Torino with three activities (Italian only):

    1. Finestre sulla Ricerca with the HyCARE’s video;
    2. Live Chat, on Friday, November 27 from 16.30 to 17.30;
    3. Good Morning Torino, with a programe dedicated to students at high-schools. The “Hydrogen Rally” will engage students in an experiment to understand how hydrogen can be produced and stored.
