Result workshop of HYACINTH project

Time: Tuesday 16th May 2017, from 5 to 7 p.m.

Place: Stuttgarter Engineering Park (STEP), Room Dali, Wankelstraße 12, 70563 Stuttgart, Germany

The HYACINTH project (Hydrogen acceptance in the transition phase), which is being funded by the European Union, examines the social acceptance of stationary and mobile hydrogen and fuel cell technologies in Europe. To do so, it has collected large amounts of data: In total, 7,148 citizens from seven European countries and more than 350 energy and hydrogen experts were questioned about their present opinions and future expectations with regard to these technologies.

Dr. Elisabeth Dütschke and Uta Schneider from Fraunhofer ISI will present the survey results at a workshop on 16 May 2017 in the Stuttgarter Engineering Park. This is followed by a discussion with the experts and the general public about the factors that will determine the further diffusion of hydrogen and fuel cell technologies.

Participation is free. To register, please send an email by 30 April 2017 to
